      ... like books to read and a set of playing cards. Trip Advisor can go **** itself.

      We never thought we would be able to afford a place in the Galle fort. The fort stands at the end of the cricket pitch and is full of well to do restaurants and shops. Not to mention being surrounded on three sides by the sea. Which kind of brings me to the second notable thing about Galle. The 2004 tsunami. While the fort, with it's thirty feet walls, ...

      We arrived in Galle and what a beautiful place this is. We are staying in the old fort built by the Dutch a few hundred years ago and has a real old colonial feel to it with lots of old merchant houses, tea shops, craft shops and even a lighthouse! We took our dinner the first night, at the Lucky Fort restaurant - highly recommended by Trip dvisor saying it was the No. 1 place to eat in Galle. And guesss whet? its opposite where ...

I've made friends I will remember for the rest of my life and also made unforgettable ...

      ... to keep fit came to talk to us and asked to see British money. We only had a penny on us, which we gave to him, but he asked to see a 5 note (which we didn’t have).

Lastly, we met Ronald and his family whilst watching the sunset. ...

      ... in black and gold (home team and defending champs colours) singing, dancing, driving around, honking, shouting and just loving life. It was such an infectious atmosphere and we couldn't help but get caught up in it. Mallikas neighbor is a former cricket super star, he played for Sri Lanka for many years and was the first boy from the defending champions school to play professionally, he is pretty popular on Galle but still made time to come see Dan and I and regale us with cricket stories ...
