... 2 or 3 times, but it was very crowded. I am not a good surfer and had a hard time catching waves on the inside. The last two days the surf was quite flat and I went to whisky point with a long board and caught a couple of very fun waves. I fell at the point one day and had pieces of reef stuck in my foot that I could not remove, they removed it at the hospital –no charge, free medical treatment for everyone at Sri Lanka public hospitals.

We also arrived in the rain, joy! Had our first experience of eating with our ...

Saman almost became teary at the airport so said a quick goodbye and began our two hour long wait in the check-in line.

I headed off to the YWCA for a cheap room that was close to the train station but was disappointed to learn it was full due to a conference. The lady at the desk gave me an address of a friend that I could stay with. So once again I headed off ...
