... hostel has finally located the item. It's too late now to go back, so I ask them to store it in a safe easily accessible place and I will return before I leave in about a month.

And the beach costs **** all of course, with added fishermen ...

The tuk tuk ride, like Sri Lanka itself, is exhilarating. The colours whizz by, streets so full of life, the buzz of the motor, the honking horns as you weave in between buses and lorries carrying elephants with the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair.
That is Sri Lanka.
Goodbye, I feel I hardly knew ...
