Angelo Mathews and Thilakaratne Dilshan browse at a handicraft shop at the colonial-era Colombo Race Course in Colombo on October 20, 2012, shortly after it was opened following a major restoration. The Race Course pavilion had been in a state of disrepair for decades after horse racing was outlawed after Sri Lanka gained independence from Britain in 1948 and the facility, which was also briefly converted to a World War II air base, is being developed as a shopping mall and a key tourist attraction. © AFP/Lakruwan WANNIRACHCHI
