Sri Lanka, extreme tourism.


I know there seems to be a lot of ancient monuments, but they have had memorable civilisation for well over 2000 years and we do all that first before travelling on to pastures new. More local bus travel, you know what that looks like! I love it. Then just look at this, they were very good water engineers all those millennia ago, and of course some of it was recreational, characteristic of civilisation—–

Sri Lanka was one of the first Buddhist countries, and a majority still is.
