    ... responsible," with many tourists complaining of harassment of the whales with too many boats. So, in the end, I decided to head straight to Unawatuna and forgo my (nearly) lifelong dream of seeing the blue whale.

After a couple of hours wandering the streets, dipping our toes into the Indian Ocean and purchasing some more souvenirs (I now have a ...
