Finally, our long awaited trip with mon amour is here!
After about 3 hours flight, we reached Colombo airport at 11 pm. The plan is to wait till the sun rise as there is nothing much to do here in Colombo in the wee hours. We knew we had to wait as well as our friends, Siham and Matthias from Paris will be reaching about 4am. With absolutely nothing to do or eat, It is no wonder that there is many tourist and backpackers were sleeping on the floor in the airport. John Green said it is the best thing to do. I make use of time of my time preparing a little gift for Siham and Matthias. Celebrating our many trips together since 2009.
It says, "Meet me halfway" (not literally as it took them more than 1 day including transit to get here from Paris! hehe)
After more than 24 hours of no sleep and 8 hours of waiting in the airport, we ended up at the Negombo Fish Market at 6am in the most brutal and shocking way (literally). We are in another world. Welcome to Sri Lanka!
Earlier on before our trip, we managed to booked a nice place for our stay. Washed up, put on fresh new clothes and we are ready to explore Negombo Town. Today, we decided to have a fancy big seafood dinner! Well, because we deserve it!
