“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks - on your body or on your heart - are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.”― Anthony Bourdain
📍Coastal line, Sri Lanka
December 12th, 2016
This photo was taken on board the coastal railway line, which runs between Colombo Fort and Matara. A mere LKR80 (ZAR 8) got us from Colombo to Kalutara, a 60km journey. The rail is so close along the shore line, it makes for a beautiful journey. However, the railway line was severely affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. A train was swept off the track, killing more than 1500, in the worst rail disaster in history. There is resounding sadness in this country which stays with you.
