It seems to me that half the Si Lankan Tamil population calls Paris home today.

food is ok but don't like the previous government. It was too pro-china.

A friend visited Sri Lanka a few months ago and stayed for a month touring the country with his students. He found it to be a very beautiful place. And much cleaner than India.

I would like to visit it some day. The problem is too many countries and so little time. Maybe I will do a short hop from India when I am there.

Honestly don't really know anything about it, apart from the black tea and its previous name, Ceylon, is quite pretty in Chinese.

I want to go there. It seems like a beautiful country.


I've also got a NYT clipping about a bunch of Sri Lankan restaurants in Staten Island. I want to try them out, but it's hard to convince myself (let alone anyone else) to go, as it's not conveniently located to where I live.

Pondicherry connection. France had a colony called Pondicherry in South India. It became independent in 1954 and the Tamil residents of Pondicherry became eligible for immigrating to France. So a good number of Tamilians settled in Paris. When there was a Civil war in Sri Lanka and Tamils were given Refugee status in France, many Sri Lankan Tamils joined the already established Tamil community of Pondicherry in Paris.

Basically Sri Lankans are of two major groups- Buddhist Sinhalese and Hindu Tamils. Other then that, there is also substantial number of Christians and Muslims too in Sri Lanka.

Besides, they've got Muttiah Muralitharan, the greatest spinner from the beginning of the world. Not just a spinner, I would say the greatest bowler and the greatest cricketer.
