Sri Lanka

About to go deal with airport hell in like 5 hours since I'm flying to Sri Lanka to speak at the first ApacheCon Asia.  Should be lots of fun, never been to that part of the World before.  Hoping I don't die in their civil war, which is the worst it has been since 2002; I should be fine though since I'll be in Colombo.  Then for the weekend I'm going on the FOSS Geek-Out which will be white-water rafting awesomeness!  So I'm psyched!

Wow, awesome.

Dunno about safety of Colombo in the grand scheme of things. The Tigers did destroy a big chunk of the airport a few years ago, blew up a few commercial planes. But it's safe enough for Arthur C Clark!

So far this time around it has all been in the NorthEast. There was one car bomb in Colombo, but that was one LTTE faction against another.
