It has been fortunate that I decided to take the risk of going out to Ela Beach. It was Independence Day and the newspaper reported that security would be beefed up at the centre of celebrations, i.e. at Ela Beach and John Guise Stadium. If there has not been no such assurance, I would have stayed at home.
After Ela Beach, we drove quite a distant out of town to reach Malaoro Market. It has always been interesting to visit markets because these are the places where you find strange things. Malaoro Market is only a small market. It is just like any markets in Malaysia and I guess that is the reason I did not find anything strange here.
