Our day started with a very interesting tour of the central market area and the Red Mosque. We encountered smiling faces and friendly people everywhere. Kelum made excellent use of the time we spent in the gridlock traffic of Colombo, explaining sites and customs and telling us about the rest of the country. Of the 12 ports we visited on our cruise, Colombo (and Sri Lanka) is first on the list to visit again. A longer tour of Sri Lanka would be a must and we would definitely hire Kelum as our guide.
