Difficile de voir l'océan, à moins de monter sur la terrasse, car il est caché par les maisons de l'autre côté de la rue et par les arbres. Les chambres avec climatisation sont spacieuses, agréablement meublées et disposent d'un petit frigo. L'eau chaude est fournie par les capteurs solaires. Le patron est très sympa et nous donne volontiers des conseils - pour trouver une bonne langouste par exemple!

It turned out to be a wise decision: the transfer was easy but finding the hotel a bit of a problem and we were very glad we were not trying to do that in the dark. The hotel, like many in ...
... and began to show us around. The room was small, and covered in original witness photos and statements from survivors of the disaster. Photos of the village before and after it hit, photos of the injured, photos of the dead. Although very graphic, this imagery provided us with a huge insight into the events that took place that day. The lady talked of her own trauma, and how her home was destroyed in the tsunami, meaning she had to live in a tent for 6months, and a she's for ...
... In the north, many areas are still recovering from the after effects of civil war and this is fairly obvious, you can still see many bullet holes in the buildings and lots of rubble. It also seems more based around agriculture as there is little to do, so it looked like people had plots of land with a tiny building and space for animals, we also saw a few ploughed fields. One of the more frustrating parts of the journey was getting into ...
