Two Monks walking

I love it when friends coordinate their outfits. Two monks walking along the old fort walls in Galle, Sri Lanka


The winner is Dave! The picture is from Galle, Sri Lanka along the old Portuguese fort walls.

Dave has decided to highlight UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. I worked with UMCOR in Sri Lanka and I can confirm that they do good work.

Galle is a wonderful place to walk around and experience Sri Lanka’s colonial architecture. Interestingly enough the fort is mostly occupied by Muslims who have business ranging from antique dealers to gem and jewelry shops. Each year the city hosts a book fair  as well as the Galle Art Festival.


Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday where each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels and you guess where it is. The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country and UNESCO Heritage site, yes that’s a hint) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant). Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below.

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

This weeks picture is less obvious, but I think there are enough clues to help you out.

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

    My logic was: Those monks look Sinhalese. That’s the ocean in the background. I checked the list of UNESCO sites in Sri Lanka and Galle was the only one on the ocean. Therefore…

    (The fact that all the other UNESCO sites are inland actually tells one a lot about Sri Lankan history)

    I really have no idea, either. But I do love that they’re so color-coordinated.
