There are often many people sleeping, staring or hanging out of the local trains at any stop in Sri Lanka and, likewise, all throughout Asia. To have this empty of both the platform and seats of the trains themselves is rare.
Stepping off the train in Colombo after a months long journey, turning my head back to see this lone man’s stare amongst the bustle of the main station before heading to the airport bound for Egypt, invited me to stop, even if just for a brief moment, to appreciate the time well spent in the magical island country of Sri Lanka.
