To conclude my visit to Shri Lanka I wish to add the impressions and reflections of the journey because journey is more important than the destinations. Happy moments and hardships can better be experienced during the journey rather than the actual place of interest of the tour. As we all enjoyed the scenic beautiful landscapes of the hilly areas while we travelled from Imphal to Dimapur and other places of north east states like Mizoram, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura and Sikkim and face breath taking fear and wonder when seen the deep gorges of the Himalayas ranges of the Uttrakhand State and Himachal Pradesh.
I had a different pleasure during the long drive in the hilly areas of Shri Lanka and the flat dense forests and coastal plains throughout the six days drive and five night stay at different places of the charming country.   We could see the slow movement of the elephant at broad daylight on the metallic road of Shri Lanka. I really like the quiet and peaceful sleep in the midst of calm weather and atmosphere in those days of night stay. It just reminded those days shivering nights at European countries during the last half of September 1980. The weather is neither hot nor cold nor wet. It is fine and nice. The roadside restaurants in Eliya areas are just a fun for the foreigners from America, China, Japan and other countries. All the restaurants are of simple structure of woods bamboos with not much decoration. I think that is the attraction of the tourists from the materially well developed countries. The well prepared sweet curd filled in the red-earthen pots of different sizes are displayed and sold at small huts on the road-side of Nuwara-Ella areas are fine and tasty. Another taste of green mangoes on the road-side is worth to eat as it is not sour nor sweet. It has a good simple taste that I had a liking.
At Colombo we had a simple walking as the coastal areas. It is one of centre of the common wealth countries. It has no speciality. At the evening of the 8th February 2017 we left Shri Lanka and flew to Chennai Airport. Thus we ended our journey. In fine I just remind to the readers that tour and travel adds to our knowledge and experience even at this advanced age of life. So, I must say youngster can learn much more from travel by expanding their knowledge and inculcating more and more ideas about the people, their cultures and their lands that are not found in the books. Hence tour and travel should be encouraged at different levels of learning and stages of education. Learn to love serve all.
