... Holy **** I love a good British turn of phrase). And today was the day! So here's what happened: We noted that our stash of cash was down to 1000 rupees (about $7 USD). This was enough for brunch, but not enough for dinner or to pay for the laundry we'd sent out yesterday.

The driver was a good your guide though, pointing things out along the way and telling us all about Sri Lanka. By the time we got here it was a bit too late to go snorkelling as planned, so instead we had a very late lunch/early dinner (another curry, seafood this time) and did a mini bar crawl along the beach bars.
