Sarong is the traditional men’kaputa chat garb in Sri Lanka. What an occasion to some body contact while taking such a lesson! I know one guy who after six months of staying in Sri Lanka still pretends not to know how to properly tie the sarong, because he loves to ask about it every guy he dreams to get laid with!
Just the opposite, attractive locals are admiring foreigners brave enough to carry their national garb. Sarong is practical, too, especially in the evening, when mosquitoes are biting. Having your legs fully covered helps a lot. And you can buy such a variety of them, from the simplest ones for 2-3 dollars to the most elegant, for instance in Barefoot Gallery in Colombo – great colors and designs, but prices too, or in any other place of your choice. I am sure you fall in love with it, and not only the one you will wear.
In Sri Lanka, though, the first meaning is really true. I experienced it recently with intensity probably available only to the one who is about to leave the Paradise Island, at least for a while. So, on the Sri Lanka beach you do not only find beach boys, handsome and ready to do anything you want and able to pay for, but also BEACH PARTIES. On this December 2007 Sunday afternoon one of Colombo’s radio stations celebrated its first anniversary on air with much fanfare, some celebrities and huge crowds, walking into Mount Lavinia beach despite bomb attack warning, which stopped the celebration a week before. Others simply walked joining hands or keeping them over the other’s shoulder, what not always means what we think it does, but looks great, anyway. There were hundreds of them. And there was more, because almost all of them were looking at foreigners with such intensity and hope for a closer contact, that the only problem you had was the choice: whom to talk first?
