Around and About

The whimsical and modern cosmopolitan city of Colombo is a mishmash of paradoxes: colonial structures and fashionable high-rise buildings, dingy streets and manicured lawns, strings of modest huts and sumptuous shopping malls, throngs of roadside eateries and fancy cafes all infuse into the vivacious picture. The Seema Malaka Temple radiates in the middle of the Beira Lake whilst the Gangaramaya Temple presents a potpourri of art and architecture, in a stone’s throw away. While elegant souvenir shops allure with a spectacle of fine porcelains, batiks and exquisite handcrafts that blend into a portrayal of sophistication, the sun-soaked bazaar of Pettah reveals itself in swirls of cacophony and endless haggling.

Yesterday you were two strangers boarding planes from far flung corners of the world. Yet, here you are tonight at the CCH, setting your sights on a daredevil mountain trek. What an adventurous team you make!
