    ... around. First stop the jewellery factory where we saw men polishing stones and shaping gold into lovely jewellery. All far too expensive for us though. Next stop .... A Temple of course! This one was a bit different though it was built into the rocks. We had to climb 300 steps in the searing heat to reach it though so we were exhausted at the top. As we were now away from the main town and the prying eyes of the police, ...

    ... progressing their English skills. We start our day off working with the boys and then head down the road to the girls unit. When I joined the girls on Wednesday there were only three boys at the home. Previously when we visited the home there were five boys.

    ... took the scenic train ride about 45 minutes south. First stop was the lighthouse which is on the southern most point of Sri Lanka. Really beautiful beach. There was a clear inlet with little waves where the kids were surfing on big squares of cardboard left by the fishermen. From there the 3 of us piled in the tuk tuk and headed to the temple that has one of the biggest Buddhas in the country.
