      The rooms are very clean if somewhat bare. Concrete beds, polished concrete walls and floors. No hot water for our 3 days stay there and the staff and management could not give a toss for the guests. Such a shame because it could be a nice place

      I watched a movie – “The Hundred Foot Journey” which was very good and then decided to watch Grace of Monaco as it was one of the shorter movies on … unfortunately all the ear phones were collected before we landed which meant I missed out on about 15 mins of so of the movie - subtitles were in a foreign language !!

      ... resting place is immediately starboard and everyone rushes to the rail!! Don't know what they thought they would see! However it was a lovely service. We have a coffee with Merv and Zeta (aussie post!) and then breakfast. Graeme enjoyed some herring - yuk! We had showers and then went to a lounge area for a read and a coffee. Later on a nice lunch and shared one of our bottles of Proscecco. Then off for a Nanna nap but Graeme went to a talk on the Sydney. This evening ...

      ... days were also cancelled, all of mine are at the same place just different classes. Luckily I did have swimming on Tuesday afternoon, which we had for the full hour and half, this is actually quite a long time so we did some fun relays and water polo for the last 30 mins. The difference in the swimming ability and the small pool makes it fairly challenging as well, some are doing butterfly whilst others are literally just learning, but they all seemed happy ...

      ... somehow managed to crawl up a drain pipe. Very interesting indeed! If anyone reading this wants to study insect behaviour at college, you just go to a Sri Lankan home. You can spend hours studying bugs and insects right from the comfort of your bed! I find cockroaches the worst because they like to crawl into folded up clothes, and when you pull on a T-shirt, 10 frantic cockroaches escape! If you are scared of bugs, be thankful you live in a western ...
