          Nice beach hotel

          We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

          Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

          We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

          As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

          We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
          Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
          Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
          Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
          All in all, a good place to stay.

          ... we even had lunch at a Russian restaurant (I think I hadn't tried Russian food before).

          And in the afternoon, while coming back from town beach we saw a tornado at the sea! I hope you can appreciate it at the picture.

          And that's mostly it... next days will have more stuff to explain... even a love story... just joking...

          ... the thief will become known by having a accident, anything from getting knocked down on their bicycle, to a coconut falling on their head! Finally I have to mention the tsunami that devastated this part of Sri Lanka, there is a memorial depicting the horror of Boxing Day 2004, where 50,000 Sri Lankans lost their lives. It's incomprehensible what these people went through, there were no warnings, no high land to run to, I can't imagine it sitting here now looking over the ...

          ... there is a small sandbar leading to a big rock that juts out the sea, where we watched the setting. We chose a restaurant called Zephyr right on the beach and watched a storm rollin over the water. We got back to the guesthouse about 11pm, at around 2am we were woken by a banging on our patio doors, I turned the outside light on and peered out the curtains and it was a couple in one of the upstairs rooms ...

          It's the final countdown..

          ... to the hill country, where it's supposedly cold like Scotland! Then on Saturday we descend to Kandy, visiting the Tooth Temple and watching some traditional Sri Lankan dancing then finally heading towards Negombo on Sunday, visiting an elephant orphanage, before flying home in Monday. I feel excited to be travelling home soon and seeing everyone, but at the same time I don't want this adventure to end. It won't be long until I'm up and going again, watch this space.... ...

          ... Been a very non descript day really, though Kaye took Dylan and Scarlett for for promised body massage which they loved and squeezed in lobster for lunch after an ATM ordeal earlier. It's the first day where we haven't been swimming since being here. Nine or so days to go - must try and get more of these three weeker holidays in! More surfing tomorrow, hope it brightens and air clears. Loved getting a few texts today and getting comments on ...
