| Heavy rain in the recent past caused havoc, especially in the hill country and many people perished or was rendered homeless as a result of numerous earth slips. Also in the aftermath quite a few roads became impassable and the rescue efforts were hampered. Even today those travelling to Nuwara Eliya and beyond, have to use alternate and often longer roads.
|I dislike hanging around most car guys. There is something about cars, motorcycles, guns, politics and sex where almost all guys think they are experts at the prior mentioned, no matter how lame and inept they actually are about the subject. Guys, usually the less they know will argue passionately for eons about these manly subjects, and data and facts will not sway their opinions. It is quite irritating for those in the know. Sometimes however, it can result in manly challenges, which can be good for the well-versed nerd, especially if they involve wagering cash!
