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.

We climbed its less well known brother, the nearby Pidurangala Rock. This rock is much less touristy, costs $3 instead of $30 and you have an amazing view of Sigiriya rock, ...
... it's the quickstep and needed. Maureen suggested it, so she's happy with her toe. It's two weeks today since her little accident. The cut has healed up fine but under the nail is going darker now, getting ready for shedding it I guess :-( Dancing went ok, all sorted now for quickstep, bought the beginners CD as well so we can continue to practise when at home. Cafe Bordeaux for lunch and met ...
... still looked fairly much like the main character from Jethro Tull's excellent album Aqualung which I am listening to as I compose this tip. Still, it would have to do as it was the best I had.
