Missing the beach, we managed to escape our cubicles and found ourselves hitching to an overcrowded bus all the way to Galle.
Galle is situated on the South-west coast of Sri Lanka. It’s a pretty place where history and culture are combined. Every structure is a great example of interchange between Asian tradition and European architecture. Walk aimlessly inside the fort and discover different kinds of architecture, a quirky restaurant, your favorite spot, or just random kids offering you a smile.
A perfect seat to watch cricket matches from the fort if you are on a budget.
Maybe it’s just my inner artsy-fartsy but i find this old beat up gate really interesting.
People enjoying their walks in giant shade trees.
Pretty students we met inside the fort enjoying their lunches.
Abundance of shops mainly selling handicrafts for tourists inside the fort.
An old lighthouse along the coast.
Another view of the town showing the dutch colonial style houses.
The well preserved fort wall along the coast.
The Heritage Cafe just around the corner.
The Pedlar’s Inn Cafe. Most of the restaurants have their own unique way of attracting their customers.
Most of the homes were turned into guesthouse to accommodate anyone who would like to stay a night or two inside the fort.
Just another day for a hard worker carpenter.
