Hey, help me to carry and you get a free loaf.
As any traveller would tell you, food can make or break your trip.
If you like spicy and curried food, Sri Lankan food will have you frothing at the mouth. But if not, you are going to have a problem. In my two weeks tramping around the country I didn't see a single McDonald or KFC or even a local version.
Fortunately, bread in all sorts of variations is widely available, even in villages. Perhaps, this is a legacy from colonial days.
So there were days when I couldn't stand another day of spicy and curried food, bread came to the rescue. Plus the odd cake which Sri Lankan also love.
