Jaffna, that beautiful peninsula surrounded by lagoons islands and wide vistas, where (nearly) every landscape is a panorama.
I have known Jaffna since I was a child. Family friends would take us up to enjoy the festival month of August. We often travelled North by the night train from Colombo, and dawn usually broke as we were crossing the spit of land called Elephant Pass that joined the peninsula to the rest of the island.
Last year, I travelled through Jaffna doing what I like doing best, traveling with little or no agenda. Old architecture has always been an interest of mine, and now I had the opportunity to visit some of the few remaining traditional homes in Jaffna.
