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 …
... water but you werent allowed to go too close. We also saw dolphins and really cool flying fish.
We had previously made friends with some Swiss guys and they were travelleing from Hikkaduwa to Adam's Peak so we travelled back to meet them to join their group. Adams Peak was something else. Its the 2nd highest mountain in SL and has 10,000 steps to the top. We set off at 11.30pm and arrives at the top at 3.30am, which was a shame as we had ...
... br> I began my tour in the aquarium which was interesting although rather busy. Being a Sunday afternoon, the place was very full. I suggest the traveller visits (if he / she wishes to) on a weekday.
I am not going to go into every beast I saw here but suffice it to say that I still do not like zoos. In fairness, there were many signs about the place indicating that the Government is expending a lot of money to improve and even expand the place. ...
Up again ridiculously early the next day, I was wondering what exactly what was wrong with my body clock. Was it jetlag? Hardly after this time.

... Both of us almost instantly fell asleep in the bus. It was a long ride anyways to the city center.
After roughly 3 hours on the bus we arrived at the Colombo Fort, the main train station in the country that is located close to the city center. Since we just arrived and we didn’t know well how to move we decided to take a tuk-tuk to our hostel because it was located far away from the center. The tuk-tuk charged us RS 700.

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.
