Many tourists still know almost nothing about the island of Ceylon . But this is Ceylon tea , Ceylon chic beach, magnificent Ceylon hotels and luxury cars. Everything is gorgeous and charming.
This island is located in the Indian Ocean. It always has summer and greenery. It is no secret that Sri Lanka is named Ceylon because of its wonderful tea . Many people come here to soak up the beaches, because this is a real paradise!
In paradise, of course, you can get from anywhere in the world. People living in these parts believe that they are closer, almost halfway to heaven from here. And that it was here that Adam’s foot first stepped, after his expulsion from paradise. The past of Sri Lanka can be said not a story, but the most that is a real collection of mysterious legends and go figure out which ones are fiction and which are true. One of these legends is closely connected with the mountain, on which once a king, erected his palace with many pools and fountains and luxurious rooms. In total, just over two hundred creations of man and nature around the whole world, UNESCO is included in the list of the treasures of all mankind, seven of which are located in Sri Lanka, among which Sigiriya is an incredibly beautiful mountain with the ruins of an ancient royal palace. Hence the whole of Ceylon “in full view”.
Sri Lankans are very gambling people and use every free minute to play street casino – a street casino. Kata puri is a traditional Sri Lankan fun, and if simple, then it is a sack fight. The rules are simple: you need to be each other with special bags, who fell, he lost.
Interestingly, on the streets you can find elephants, no one pays attention to them. Sri Lanka is a blessed land, that is how the Sri Lankans called their native island, it was called Ceylon until the 70s of the 20th century. Almost 20 million friendly and very smiling people live here. They are engaged in the extraction of coconuts and sapphires, sew clothes on orders from eminent European companies, entertain tourists who rush to see Sri Lanka with their own eyes – the so-called “pearl of the Indian Ocean”.
When the Portuguese first landed here in Ceylon, they were terribly surprised to find that the locals here are able to smoke. Before that, it was believed that smoking was the invention of the Americans and Indians, no, Ceylon had long been lovers of this bad habit. And until now, locals prefer Ceylon cigarettes to modern ones. Sri Lanka so far has resisted the processes of globalization, defending here its vital, national, which has existed here for many centuries.
Each country has its own gods, its spirits and its sorcerers. Sri Lanka is no exception. Here you can find a specialist in perfume, a medicine man and a forecaster of the future.
Sri Lankans incredible sweet tooth, maybe it’s from too spicy food, after it I want to drink strong tea with something sweet. All the goodies in Sri Lanka are made from coconut. It is amazing how many useful substances the Lankans manage to make them of it. They are very soft and friendly people and are always happy to treat a new tourist with their sweets.
