Negombo, Sri Lanka
Under the Shade of a DhowNegombo, Sri Lanka is frequently a visitor's destination for a day either upon entry into the country or upon exit from the country. That is because Negombo is the largest city near the major international airport in nearby Colombo. I too spent my last evening in Sri Lanka right here in a hotel on Negombo Beach. It was relaxing to spend the morning on the beach before leaving for the Colombo airport. I enjoyed looking at the traditional dhows that lined the beach, especially this colorful one that appears to provide shade for one beach visitor.
