    In the south west corner of Sri Lanka is a town called Galle. Large enough to house one of the nations three major cricket stadiums, this is a place of historical interest. The Dutch built the fort here in the 1660s, extending and improving on what the Portuguese had done before them. Despite its massive fortifications, it was ceded to the English in 1796, just one week after Colombo was captured, without a single shot ...

    ... he told us to phone our friend, the tuk tuk driver. Our friend? He told us you were his friend, this is all getting a little weird, i want away now!!! We decided to go to hikkaduwa which is north a little and we definately didnt tell the "cool guy" tuk tuk driver we were going.

    ... boat safari tour tomorrow. Obviously he asks for money for his sick mother too. Several times over. In really badly broken English. Trapped much? Trapped totally. He's actually a really nice guy but I could do without the attention. It only gets marginally better when he asks if I like Bob Marley and ganja. Relieved at understanding something he says I reply with my story of growing ganja. He's mightily impressed. But doesn't shut up. We come into Galle, ...
