One of my best friends in college came from there and had told me so much about it. But then sadly, the bombs came. The fighting between the Tamils coming down from the north and the Sinhalese from the south reached crazy proportions. So I had to cancel my trip. Jaffna Now, Sri Lanka has recovered from the war.
