I visited Colombo last November, on a brief vacation in Sri Lanka. The city is deeply historical and as a Tamil, I found that memories of the war live on in its people. I loved wandering into alleyways and discovering how a large part of the Sri Lankan population lived; some in poverty, others in luxury. It reminded me of India. However, I think the city of Colombo is now undergoing a deep transition - political and cultural - and I really hope that is for the better.
