For better or worse, the Prima Flour Factory dominates Trincomalee. Apparently this factory supplies all of Sri Lanka’s wheat flour and the government was freaking out cause LTTE artillery in Sampur was threatening the national malu paan supply. And also like 40% of the oil. But that’s over now. Now the Prima Factory just dominates Trinco like a Stalinist monument, grounding your perspective from every angle.
It’s big and it’s there. I’m not sure if it’s pretty, but I have a strange affection for it. It’s like Orion I guess. You look around in a strange place and it’s always there.
