■ SRI LANKA, MATALELE: Before coming to Sri Lanka I conjectured finding a gym would be difficult. Especially in rural parts of the country. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, the more rural and uninhabited the village or road, the greater the chances are that you’ll find a functional little gym to pump some iron. Case in point; this little makeshift place which is the cheapest gym I have ever come across anywhere in the world!
As for the gym’s location. I’ve tried to find it in Google maps but simply don’t remember how far (in kms) drove from the city towards Sigiriya.
