Thank you for watching!

After spending much of my time in the northern part of Sri Lanka, around Jaffna, I traveled back to Colombo and just had a few days before flying out.

One day I decided to make a quick day trip to Galle, one of the most famous and historically important cities in Sri Lanka.

After leisurely walking around Galle Fort and grabbing some Sri Lankan fish cutlets, I took another local bus to Unawatuna to enjoy the gorgeous beach and sunset.

Thanks again for watching the video!

      Hey guy, unfortunately the sound on that video was terrible, I guess we were sitting next to the window and the camera picked up all the wind instead of the sound of the dude singing – but it really was a great song he jammed. I’m going to see if I can edit the wind out, but not sure it will be good enough… I know man, I was missing Sri Lankan making this as well!

    Hi Mark, How long you been in Galle. There are many many beautiful places around Galle to see. Ex: Unawatuna Beach, Hikkaduwa Beach (Coral Reefs), Polhena Beach, Galle Habour, The Light House and many more… There is a whole different culture in southern part of Sri Lanka where you can’t find them around Colombo.

    Anyway Have you been to Katharagama (in Southeast part of Sri Lanka, near Hambantota)? You should go there when the Perahara Season (Full moon poya day in August).

    Another great video, Mark. I love how you capture the true spirit of a place in your videos, with all the hustle and bustle! And I always like seeing you dive into all the different foods here… those random fish snacks look great!

      Thank you very much for taking the time to watch Steph. Those little fish cutlets are basically ground fish mixed with all kinds of spice and then deep fried – seriously tasty!
