Signs of Sri Lanka

 

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.
