... are plentiful. Naughty monkeys chase crows in the tall trees. There are wonderful stories of goatherds, whose animals shared their tiny family home and years ago there was a pig sty to supply pork to the wealthy Dutch merchants. JULIET COOMBS and her amazing book 'Around the Fort in 80 lives. This book was mentioned to me on the first morning by Oliver our charming young manager at the hotel. He lent me the hotel copy but we have since bought our own as it is a treasure trove of ...

Day 14- Mirissa

A travel blog entry by gracieonamap on Nov 14, 2013

The morning starts with pancakes (which I fill with shop bought chocolate) and some sunbathing. We then grab the bus to Matara with Lorena and Marco.
