Sri Lanka 2011/12, a set on Flickr.
Ok I've (as usual) been really slow with this lot, but finally here are a selection of my images from my last Lonely Planet research trip to Sri Lanka. For this current edition I had the great pleasure of re-researching the south coast and west coast as with the previous edition, but I also got to cool off in the delightful hill country. I love doing the Sri Lanka book, it's one of those jobs that feels as much a holiday as a job - the people are warm and friendly, the curries the best in the world, the scenery beautiful, the beaches near perfect and so I could go on.... In fact the only negative I can ever really come up with is that I don't find it as photographically stimulating as its big brother to the north!
I'll be back in Sri Lanka later this year and am looking forward to a rice and curry already!
