A weird display of status, but bicycles cost double now. Got one for Rs 80,000, which was about 80% of the average household income (monthly) in Colombo

I’m rich in Sri Lanka. Indirectly, but it’s one household. What I will detail here is honestly embarrassing and goes unspoken in polite company, but you should know how rich people are doing at this time of terrible suffering. We’re mostly fine, and it’s a crime.
