Today marks the last week of my cashless journey until the end of September. I go straight back into our weekly routine and head out to the local supermarket for groceries, fruit and vegetables – this time without any trouble! Its nice knowing I am not going to have any problems today finding lunch or dinner, albeit after eating out all week, I decide to stay home and have lunch and dinner with my family.
After the weeks journey around Sri Lanka and observing consumers throughout the day, I am very proud to see how far advanced Colombo city is in the use of electronic payments by consumers and businesses. I still cannot help but think about the week I have just experienced and share some of the stories with my family.
