Pic: Colombo's busy Railway Station. We booked 1st class on the second leg of our trip. Since it was air conditioned we couldn't open the windows to take pictures. 2nd class is fine...the fans and open windows do a good job of keeping you cool.
Pic: The green bee-eater's were flitting everywhere along the road. By the end of the day, they seemed as common to us as the sparrows are back home.
Pic: We saw a lot of birds, crocs, and monitor lizards on our scenic walk by the lake. The friendly locals always wave or say hello.
