Sri Lanka

 Pictures from Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has been a war-torn country for many years. It was hard hit by the tsunami in 2004.
But it is a green and fertile country with a strategic position in the Indian ocean.

Our university has cooperated with the University of Ruhuna at Matare for several years, and every year several of our students spend a month or more studying various aspects of the “emerald island”.

The island can boast of friendly people, animals, birds, a long history, fantastic beaches, tea, cinnamon, jackfruit, cashewnuts, pineaple, papaya, great food….

Here is a photo gallery from Sri Lanka.
