On March 26, a group of 13 or so created some confusion among the vendors at the old market on Sea Street in Negombo.

“Where are you from?” was an often-repeated question. Armed with cameras and smartphones, perhaps the group did look like tourists.

In fact, the group was participating in Instameet – part of a global event where users of Instagram in  particular country or locality connect. There are usually two Instameets held a year, and across the world, Instagram users organise their own meetings on that date.
