Anthony Bourdain in Sri Lanka

Jump to last reply

I just finished watching the Sri Lankan episode which I had taped. Fascinating! Sri Lanka now appeals to me more than ever. One of the major realisations that dawned on me is that I knew nothing about Sri Lankan cuisine prior to watching this. Absolutely mouthwatering colors, blends of flavors and textures. Have I not been paying attention to the trip reports? Seems like food should have been given more emphasis.

I've had my ideas of a trip to Sri Lanka on the back burner for a while, and continue to shape the details. Perhaps a culinary tour of Colombo? Prior to watching this show I had planned to stay in Colombo the night of arrival only. Now it occurs to me that it deserves more time from an already tightly packed schedule.

The show also touched on the ongoing rebuilding after the tsunami, the civil war, and a culture I had never heard of, the Dutch Burghers (sp?).

Sadly, it seems my visit is still a ways off because of the poitical troubles and warnings against Yala which I would really like to see. But 'wow', was what I kept thinking as I watched.

Did anyone else see the show?
