      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!

      Good stay

      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.

Between eruptions the line is a wildlife oasis, with mutli-coloured birds flitting about, whooping monkeys, truly huge bats, monitor lizards and the occassional a mongoose, - which is about the size of a ...

      Love is the answer, but love is the problem.

      ... in the afternoon, just for a short time to do some activities or games with them outside (if we are granted permission). In my emotional distress I seemed to forget about why the boys were in the unit- what things they had done for being in there. I seem to dwell on and think about their feelings and what they must be feeling and thinking about, being separated from their families. But at the end if the day, they have still done something wrong to be there.... At the girls there was ...

      Beaches, turtles and whales

      ... a good sunscreen because in Hikkaduwa you will not be able to find anything stronger than 30, except of one cheeky lady selling children’s 50 for the price of ridiculous 12.

      Being lobster red we needed a day off the beach so we decided to fulfil our dream and for the next day we booked a whale watching trip. Sri Lanka especially Mirrisa is very famous for whale watching and it was the peak season.

      On the way there we saw lot of fish markets, and we managed ...

      Today we have mostly been whale watching this morning, (which should actually be called whale chasing/whale glimpsing/predominantly sea watching) AND unashamedly sunning ourselves this afternoon. We did see an impressive pod of dolphins and many glimpses of various whales this morning. It was exhilarating rolling with the big waves and feeling closer to nature. Dylan did not fare so well and mostly spent the time throwing up or sleeping! Nevertheless ...

      ... Thank God, Budda or Joe Pesci for that matter, for 3g internet on Sri Lanka. THE LIFE SAVIOUR!!! Suddenly the light on the porch went off. So did the fan and all other lights in the area. Great, power cut! And I'm the only person in the building. I went to my bag to find a torch, but didn't actually know what was I going to do with it. iPad has it's own light, and wasn't going to do anything else at the moment that playing with it. If the problem turns out to be ...
