yes, I've known this. Street life isn't same dynamic as before. Sadly nowadays you've a lot of check points, no-go and no-photo areas in Colombo :-(
Greetings from Germany, Andreas
yeah that's really sad
Growing up in Colombo in the 70s, I remember going to this restaurant for very special occasions. We were kids so we were very impressed with the escalator - I believe the only one in the country at that time.
I visited again in '98 and this street was mostly rubble, the Ceylinco Building just a blown out shell. A shame.
DesignDingo, I think you're right in general. The government seems to spend a lot of money on military and the civil war. On the other hand much new skyscrapers were built in downtown Colombo. At my last visit in 1983 the city began to grow modern and therefore I guess the resources presently are missing for preserving and development of existing buildings. Hopefully this crazy war will end soon. Best wishes, Andreas
