We were checking out the Colombo International Book Fair (Sinhala/Tamil) and stumbled upon this random farm in the middle of BMICH. Not in the building itself, but to the east side. The CIC and Agriculture people have set up a working model form with cows and all and they were serving fresh produce during the fair. It’s pretty awesome.
This is my favorite thing about Colombo/Sri Lanka. The random cool. The TV set in the middle of a playground, the park overlooking the sea, the kids taking a bath in the fountain at the ODEL roundabout. Colombo’s Random Cool.
I never thought I’d find a farm in the middle of BMICH, but it’s there, with cows and plants and all. And you can have a meal of it as well (not the cows, the vegetables). This is why Sri Lanka is the best.
