Sri Lanka, a small country on the south of India is truly a gem of the Indian Ocean. A country totally off from the travelers' eyes has just started to gather tourists after the internal political war finished in 2008.
I took an Air India flight form Delhi to Colombo direct and set out on an eight days expedition to explore the unexplored Lanka - the land of Jewels, Lions, Jews and more.
Colombo is a crazy place. Period. Much similar to Delhi, India but definitely a cleaner city. I stayed there for a day just and took a local train to Kandy, central highlands.
