From 91 Days in Sri Lanka
For 91 days we lived on the island of Sri Lanka, and had some unforgettable adventures and experiences.

And though the unbroken chain of shops and restaurants still had their neon lights blazing, there weren’t many people on the sidewalks. It was 10pm, and we’d rarely seen the island in a deeper state of rest. We were headed to the airport, and putting Colombo to sleep….
