We're two writers who have been dumped by some friends who'd chosen to go to Goa and leave us in Sri Lanka for New Year's... tell us if this they would regret their decision? :)
This will be our first time in Sri Lanka too. We will spend up till Xmas with our so-called mates in Colombo and then we are free.
Any suggestions or warnings?
Here is what's on our minds:
1) Some kind of memorial of the Boxing Day tsunami we can attend
2) New Year's Eve party/ rave
3) Low budget accommodation (though not necessarily shoestring)
4) We like beer
5) We like music
6) We like the beach
7) We like meeting people and parties
Do you think a Lonely Planet would be a prudent investment?
Many, many thanks!
