Sunset was happening so we had a walk along the fort walls to watch it and explore the fort a little more while there was still daylight. The sunset was very red here, it was nice.

    ... t have time, that I was just getting some lunch and then had to meet the driver. He assured me it wouldn't take much time and that I couldn't miss it.

He tries to get me to go into the tuk tuk, says we'll only go for five minutes...when I refused and told him I wasn't going, the smile disappeared, replaced by a scowl. He got into the tuk tuk, and started talking to the ...

    Arrived safe & sound however a little tired and emotional at 1 am after a big day! A day which started with our usual peace park walk followed by some time with Gracie and Ezzie before the long haul to Colombo via Singapore.

    ... bit more off a chill as after travelling all week, everything was fairly hectic. We went over some of what they had already been taught, and decided to do a few more directions. In Youth training YT most speak some English, they are on vocational courses for bakers, electricians, beauticians and we are meant to get them speaking more confidently in English as most cvs and interviews are done in ...

Woakes and Borthwick had been going along carefully in the morning session, but the arrival of Liam Plunkett at the crease signalled ...
