Pettah Market 1/2 by Tripoto
Masala Foie Gras
We came back for a quick shower to our hostel and went out again to discover the markets around the Pettah area. If you like bustling places and with people haggling for lottery tickets, fruits, meat, clothes, shoes all at the same place, well then yeah the Pettah market is the place to be! Since we already get that in plentiful doses in India, so we headed to the Old Dutch Hospital for some peace and quiet. This is basically the quarters of an old hospital which has now been converted into a commercial complex, housing quirky shops, fancy cafes and eateries.And thus we drank some more Sri Lankan beer and prepared to bid adieu to the (commercial) capital for a while and head towards the rest of our desinations.Day 2: Sigiriya
