As many of you known, I like to collect photos of signage during my travels. It's a bit random to see what will strike my fancy, but I find these photos usually tell a story about the destination beyond what you'll find at major attractions. One of these signs was actually our One Clue Mystery for this week. I was hoping someone would recognize it as being from Sri Lanka (it was actually from the lagoon in Batticaloa), but no bites.
Sri Lanka is trying to to transition to a modern economy; we'll see if it's successful. I'd did notice increased numbers of more modern signs while i was there during my last trip, as commerce is becoming more westernized. These were often in both English and Sinihalese.
Here's some of what I saw during my most recent travels on the island nation.
