Tired legs in a city.

A travel blog entry by beckeyjw on Apr 27, 2014

... that arrogant and makes a deal with the manager. For 40€ we get the best table on the first floor including all you can eat and drink for 2 people. We are there stationed from 16h with the 4 of us and the ceremony starts only at 20h... So actually we are nearly as crazy as the locals. Sri Lankees trekt een beetje op het gebrabbel dat je hoort tijdens veilingen wanneer mensen veel te snel spreken! Het wachten duurt tot 21h maar dan barst het spektakel los. ...

A complimentary massages with homemade oil blends using Ayurvedic massage techniques was offered (although a tip was expected) and cups of chai and tastes of cocoa shared. A trip to the shop was expensive...but in the SriLankan heat an Aloe Vera and avocado cream has rescued my unhappy English rose skin immeasurably!

    I stayed in the olde empire. it was nice experience. I liked the wooden house and the main central location. the balcony in the second floor is the "cherry" of the hotel with cozy chairs and beautiful design.
    The rice and curry in the restaurant downstairs is also amazing.

    The cons are the not so clean sheets and cold water in the shower.
