The last night I spent in Colombo, Suchetha and his friends took me out for 'a real Sri Lankan night out.' Which apparently meant watching a Richard Gere/Jennifer Lopez movie (in English, no subtitles), among other things. The movie was fun, and afterwards we went to a tapas place for dinner. I got nachos, which I thought would be safe, but, umm...well, I don't know that I recommend ordering tapas in Sri Lanka. But my margarita was good, and Suchetha taught me to dance the cha-cha. Then there was more drinking at the Inn on the Green, which was a nice quiet place to hang out and talk, and they had good cider as well as a vast selection of beers. The talk somehow turned to a rather explicit conversation about sex. Not what I was expecting, but interesting nonetheless. The conversation continued over coffee at a hotel coffeeshop, and we didn't wind things up until around 3 a.m. or so, by which point it almost seemed like we might as well just stay up all night -- but I'm not actually twenty anymore, so we didn't. :-)

actually it wasn’t ENTIRELY typical. when my friends and i get together (the other guys in the picture are Renuke (aka Ray) and Omar (aka “the camel”)) we usually start up at a cheap pub for happy hour, then head somewhere for more food and alcohol, and then somewhere else for even more alcohol and dancing, sometimes coffee,and then stomach settlers at a dingy little joint called pilawoos.
unfortunately this was a sunday night.. so there really wasn’t much to do.
and eris knows how, but EVERY conversation ends up being about sex and relationships where we are concerned
Suchetha, what are the names of the tapas place and the hotel coffeeshop? I can’t remember.
the tapas bar was called Bistro Latino, and the coffee place was Summerfields at the Transasia Hotel
what i miss are Denny’s and IHOP. spent far too many early morning there when i was in the US.
Summerfields is just too frelling classy for that
