The old town of Galle is a cute little quarter in southern Sri Lanka. What was once a Dutch colonial outpost is now a thriving local community of poets, artists, gemstone dealers and boutique shop owners. There's a historic worshipping house for every religion dotted around the city, a ton of stray cats wandering about, unbelievably clean cobblestone streets, a decent beach (that could use a bit of a cleanup) and charming choices for accommodation.

This is very inspiring. I have heard so many great things about Sri Lanka but these are amazing photos. I really enjoy the rustic lifestyle you've depicted. Especially with the cows in the barn(?). Is that a barn or ?

Hey @AdrianTrvlTales thanks for your taking a look at my journal. That cow picture is actually a small opening on the inner walls of the fort.

Very cool! Your photos are incredible. You did a good job of capturing the country and its people. Beautiful work.
