    ... waters, or fly a kite. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, very similar to those first evening strolls along Galle Fort ramparts. The Aussies and I decide to have a cocktail on the terrace of the other colonial hotel grand dame, the Galle Face Hotel, at the top end of the green. This one has had a recent makeover and is now of the requisite elegance and splendour to merit its décor and location.
