I learned in Colombo that in order to fly with a tourist visa from Sri Lanka to India, you also need to have the ticket out. Of course (…) we don’t yet have our return tickets, it’s a miracle we have our tickets to get to Trichy. So I had to buy a return ticket from Trichy to Colombo, even though 99% I won’t be flying out of India through Trichy. I hope I can cancel it and get a refund.

The “Executive Lounge” at the Bandaranaike International Airport (CMB) is a joke. But the rest of the airport is so crowded that it kind of make sense to pay $15 to use the Executive Lounge.
