The heat of Sri Lanka's south coast drives us (or more accurately me, dragging Georgina) to get early starts for buses, sweating on a bus around midday isn't that fun.
We rocked up to Galle around 10.30am and got a taxi (a tuk tuk, but the name has mysteriously changed in Galle) into Galle Fort. It was a bit like stepping out of reality. …

"Tuk-tuk". "Good Lord, is it? There was me thinking it was a billiard table". (That one really gets them).
"Where you go?" "For a walk".
"What you doing?" "Tying to have a smoke in peace without being annoyed by bloody tuk-tuk drivers".
"You stay?" (meaning where do you stay). "I might if I don't get arrested for throttling an annoying tuk-tuk driver".
