Started off from Hikkaduwa and went on to visit the turtle hatchery in Kosokode and mask factory in Ambalakoodan.
Turtle hatchery was interesting, but the mask factory was a let down and the masks were even more expensive than Hikkaduwa. Spent only 5 minutes in the mask …
I finally touched down in Colombo at about 4.30pm after leaving Cape Town at 7pm yesterday (managed to watch about 5 films in the progress, when I wasn't having a cat nap or being feed food by the air hostesses - lunch and dinner were served within about 3.5 hours of each other).

No shaving point (Room 307). No electrical points what so ever. What kind of a 3 star hotel has a CRT TV( if you remember what that is) with a twisted plug point inserted forcibly in to the socket.??? Food was pathetic, if not bad. Pointeless to even rate this hotel.
