Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell was joined by American writer Jay Mclnerney and Mrs Mclnerney on a SriLankan Airlines’ Air Taxi ride from Colombo to Koggala to participate at the Galle Literary Festival held recently.
The trio were some of the first celebrities to embark on a scenic ride since the recent re-launch of the air taxi service which has scheduled as well as special domestic air services to several parts of the island.
The air taxi ride over the coastal belt of the western and southern Sri Lanka afforded a breathtaking view of the country and after an extended stay at the Taprobane Island in Weligama, Candace said “Sri Lanka is beautiful and I loved my visit here. I intend to come back sometime to see what I have missed like the tea plantations, Elephant Orphanage and Kandy.”
She also commented that ‘the people were nice’ and that she had a ‘great experience in Sri Lanka’.
