... us instead of making themselves useful around the house.

We spend the day visiting the ancient ruins of Polo which are divided into 5 groups. The heat is at its highest so we decide to walk rather than cycle as we don’t think we can face even a small hill pedalling on a bike.

Add to this the fact that many tourists can spend days at Yala without seeing a single leopard, and we felt very lucky to see five in one day.

Exhausted from the all-day safari, our bed was tempting, but we decided to get a tuk-tuk to nearby Kataragama, to watch the evening temple ceremony ...
