Flag of Sri Lanka  ,
Saturday, July 13, 2002

This is the first time I landed in Sri Lanka and I initially had a cultural shock especially when seeing cows grazing at the runway. The airport was heavily guarded by the army but a blessing in disguise was that I am having a Malaysian passport and we entered easily without much hassle.

Upon landing and immigration clearance, we were greeted by the tour guide, Chandrasekaran and taken via a bus specially chartered for us. Later I was made to understand that the local ground operator in Sri Lanka is Jetwind Group, which is a large group there which have their own resorts and hotels. 

From here, we were taken to the hotel which was quite a journey away. Also did a short stop at the beach in Negombo area.
