By Mark Wiens 6 Comments

First, Watch the Jaffna Video (Above)!

The town of Jaffna (யாழ்ப்பாணம்) is located in the northern part of Tamil, Sri Lanka.

All the footage from this video was taken during my $10 per day trip to Sri Lanka in October 2011.

    Love how you keep an open mind when traveling. You made me homesick…..until you mentioned the humidity! People should know that the food is great though only if you can handle spice. Do you think SL food is the spiciest?

    The sour mangoes, are amazing if you toss them around in a dish with jaffna curry powder and salt.

    Loved watching the video. Wood apple cream is my favourite drink, usually the pulp from the ripe woodapple is mixed with coconut cream and sugar and the seeds are sieved (can be diluted to suite your taste).

    I heard rumors about security issues in India and Thailand, does it feel any different in there than most of times.
    I`m planning to visit Sri Lanka next month, guess I`ll go to Jaffna as well.
