I love spaces with stories. While at The Mount Lavinia Hotel, I actually got to be at the fabled Governor’s room. Yes, it was the rare room with limited access and has probably never before been photographed before and revolved around the love affair of the British Governor - the 200 year old history defined this space. Things have still been preserved the same way as they were - from the bed to the furniture. The secret tunnels lead to this room where the British Government met his lover, back in 1806. Its if I was entering in another time, space and life. Photos on the post and stories. @mount_lavinia_hotel

Galle shares many traditions with the Maldives.
And this is the same technique used to make the embroidery of a Maldivian “Libaas” .
This could be because Galle is the closest point from Maldives’ to Sri Lanka.
It used to be a major trading hub for the southernmost atolls of Maldives when they formed their own republic.
In fact we even met a local guy who travelled to Addu , the southernmost atoll in Maldives by boat.

Along the Sri Lankan coast, a few years ago. I arrived on or around the day the ceasefire with the rebels had collapsed. Tourists were heading out of the country in haste. As the country was emptying, I felt at times like the only foreigner stupid enough to stay on. I had a couple of near misses when a train that I had been on got blown up hours later with numerous casualties. That scene was repeated with a bus I had been on. There were many random stops and crude bag checks throughout the country. There was even an incident where a drunk local came up to me in the town of Galle, and asked me to leave the country, because (as he put it) 'your country (India) is helping the bad guys'. I stayed for nearly the entire month I was allowed to on my visa, and as I left, I had this eerie feeling of being the last one to leave the country. The civil war ended months later, and Sri Lanka has enjoyed peace since then.
