I was hanging around ODEL junction, waiting for the protesters to come. The cops rolled out the barricades and stood in ambling protest against the protest. Or something. The police piled into buses and headed towards Kelaniya with the water cannons. I don’t think any students ever came. One never stands in the middle of the street cause you’re not supposed to, but sometimes you see things differently if you stop. Of if the cops stop everything for you. From that point, for example, you could see the white domes of Colombo 7’s mosque, Town Hall and clock tower line up just perfectly.
And this moustache.
