  1. Actually Sri Lanka would be way more developed if the war against LTTE terrorists hasn’t been dragged on for almost 15-20 years. Even one of the Singaporean presidents said when he visited Sri Lanka (think it was around 60’s or 70’s not sure) before the war, one day he will make Singapore a beautiful developed country just like Sri Lanka. & of course he did, & if you look at Singapore today, it’s 1 of the most developed in the world,while SL went on a different path because of the war.

  19. Thanks David for the reply. I now live in Canada. When I watched your video I felt that you had missed a lot of places. I wanted to be Sujith’s shoes and show you around …..but I know everything is not in the videos. I hope you did not develop any travelers diarrhea after eating from way side “Hotels”. There is a big difference in taste between the string hoppers you ate and the ones which are home made or made in good Hotels. i hope you also had a chance to eat Hoppers.
