... in all their glory. To my dissapointment we continued to keep driving the tuk tuk driver barely batting an eyelid (all the tuk tuk drivers are normally so adamant to stop along the way so they can earn themselves a decent tip). I just sat there in hope that when we drove through Weligama there would be more stilt fisherman for us to stop and marvel at. However this was not the case as ...

We hadn't eaten anything and it was now 3pm, so we asked the driver to stop ...

I think my bus driver qualified at the Kamikaze School for Bus Drivers. This is the first time in my life that I have actually thought about getting of a vehicle. It was the most nerve racking, frightening ride I have ever experienced. I think we passed every other vehicle while going 3 times the speed ...
