Sri Lanka

So the last time I was here (only a few weeks ago) I was told excitedly by lots of people that the security checks on the roads were being taken down all over the country and specifically in Colombo – but I guess someone forgot to tell the Police as they are still everywhere.

Perhaps one day the roads and the airport will be like the majority of countries where you don’t have to go through checks and can travel without expecting to be stopped every 10 minutes.

I don’t want to sound like I am knocking the country for the sake of it – but having been here on and off since ’97, I am a little jaded about the political agenda of the current government and the size of the ego of the President.

You can only hope he has the country at heart and the legacy he leaves; more than his own epitaph.
