      ... is one of the few concessions I have seen to the mobility impaired in Sri Lanka.

      When it came time to leave, Treshi absolutely insisted on paying. I had fully intended to pay but she had the advantage over me of speaking Sinhala and thus persuaded the maitre d' to give her the bill.
