Sri Lanka – End Of The World


Morning lads,
Greetings from MB in KSA and hope all well your end. Football season just started & HX club doing well, al hamd’allah. All well in the desert.

HX blog follower Young Sudani lad  was complaining to MB during the week that he is bored with Sri Lanka stories, so maybe MB will wrap it up this week. Got to keep the paying customers happy lads, and keep the numbers growing. The public gets what the public wants.

Happened across a Bollywood movie being shot in Colombo, Sri Lanka few weeks back. Great street action, and many old cars & vans. The ‘Buick 8’ from 1947 (according to the driver) was the pick of the bunch:

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways


Tamil Hindu festival celebration on streets of Colombo, Sri Lanka, yesterday 10th August 2013. Not sure what its about but will find out.

Men are hung from poles (fixed to pickup trucks) via ropes and meat hooks fixed through skin and muscle tissue. Other revellers push and pull them so they swing spectacularly back & forth as the truck drives along.

Shot this from open door of my bus as we passed it on the street.

MB visited in April 2008. Deeply disturbing to do the tour, but recommend to any who might visit Berlin. Unforgettable experience of a ‘not nice but very memorable’ kind. Read More
