Whenever someone asks me how Sri Lanka was, I always end up thinking of the time I spent hiking and exploring this region of low lying mist and clouds.
I started thinking of all the things I can get for $25 in Sri Lanka. 3 days’ accommodation. 25 lunches. A tuk tuk load of Tambili coconuts. $25 is a lot of money in Sri Lanka.
I always recommend people to check out the local markets when they’re traveling. To be honest it’s not always the colorful tapestries you see in magazines. Sometimes it’s a photographer’s heaven, other times it’s just ‘meh’ if not downright dangerous.
Beruwala fish market is an example where it’s particular rewarding.
