SRI LANKA ~West Coast -

First of 3 wonderful Sri Lanka postcards waiting to be uploaded...A gorgeous golden sunset featuring palm tree silhouettes and a Bullock cart...Paradise does indeed exist!!
Thanks a lot Ravindra...more to come^__^

As usual a with a variety of nice and interesting stamps.

The West coast is the area stretching south from Colombo towards Galle.  It is the most developed and most tourists oriented from all. The beautiful coastline is full of hundreds of hotels and guesthouses with different standard.

 A bullock cart  is a two-wheeled or four-wheeled vehicle pulled by oxen (draught cattle). It is a means of transportation used since ancient times in many parts of the world. They are still used today where modern vehicles are too expensive or the infrastructure does not favor them. Used especially for carrying goods, the bullock cart is pulled by one or several bullocks.
