    presented cachexic and with a cheek cancer that had eroded through to the skin.
    There is also a lot of oesophageal cancer which the oncologists blame on hot
    tea drinking. Although rates of all STIs are lower in Sri Lanka than most
    countries, HPV is ubiquitous enough that many cervical cancers are seen.
    Cervirax vaccine is available, but only in the private sector and most ward

    ... quite famous for.

    Now we have to say, that we were all prepared to miss this off our itinerary as we thought we would not have time to see everything and thought we would leave off the least interesting!

    We were all really pleasantly surprised as the caves were ...
