A foot-path by a canal.

A mini golf course.
Colombo has a brand new park with foot-paths and waterways to spend an evening. There is boating available but the best way to relax is to sit and watch the world go by.

A vintage Austin, BMICH, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Austin cars made in England were quite popular in the days of the British Colonial rule. I took these photos of vintage cars for hire for use at wedding ceremonies, parked as advertisement, at the BMICH, Colombo.

Ride on a 'kola patha', Joys of childhood, Sri Lanka.

Getting ready with a 'kola patha' - Arecanut palm leaf base.
Seated and getting a good grip on the fronds.
Away on the ride of a life-time.
Getting a ride on a 'kola patha' - the base of an arecanut leaf - is still one of the joys of childhood in Sri Lanka. The peals of laughter of the rider and the spectators is a joy to watch.
