Back after a few weeks relaxing recharging my batteries I started working life two days ago. Everything went fine until riots started. It didn't touch me really but the things were discussed by a lot of natives. It began at the beginning of last week with a traffic accident in the district Kandy, famous for his tea plantations and in the middle of Sri Lanka conveniently. A truck driver wanted to allow to not overtake four youngsters apparently. The apparently drunk boys got revenge brutally and killed the man. The culprits were Muslims who define themselves in Sri Lanka as an independent group. The victim belonged to the majority of the Singhalas. As a result set out of mob. Local residents in Kandy and in other places speak of organised groups. They lighted shops, private houses of Muslims and a mosque. The government closed down all social mediums and still there is no contact to my friends there available.
Anyway, this blog will continue as before.
Have a good time people.
