From day 1, I found Jaffna to be incredibly rewarding. Because the war that ravaged the region only ended a few years ago, I expected a tense, solemn, post-war feel. Instead, I was greeted by friendly, positive, and laid back people who were as interested in us as vice-versa. Not many foreigners make it here since you need a travel permit to visit.
