          The Ivory Inn is located one short block, five minutes walk, from the lovely beach at Mt Lavinia, half hour south of Colombo. The rooms we had could do with a touch up and our bathroom was pretty shabby but certainly no worse, in fact considerably better, than many similar hotels we've stayed in through South and East Asia. It has a fan and a balcony and a big, slightly hard bed, but good enough. Where the Ivory gets top marks is the lovely communal area on the ground floor - an open sided space with dining tables and lounges. Good WiFi and a beautiful, well kept tropical garden all around. The service is also superb, a tasty breakfast with quality 'Ceylon' tea and friendly, obliging staff. Price wise it is reasonable considering it is in the capital city and so close to a beach (£17 for our double room).

          ... and headed to the police station so Nai could report her phone to claim on her insurance. We went to the police station closest to our current location, that should be fine right? But upon speaking to the big dawg, chief of police, all he was concerned with was why we had chosen to come to 'his' police station. Paranoid much? He sent us to a Mt. Lavinia police station and Nai had to write her own police report, and then they merely stamped ...

          ... Sri Lanka was his last stop. We went for dinner with him and an English Indian lady. It was really enjoyable and we talked about previous relationships and funny stories. We went to mount Breeze, our favourite restaurant from our last visit. We then sat in the communal area in the hostel before going to bed. The power cut out just before bed, which mean the fan wasn't working in the room. Disaster, not another boiling night. But after around 30 minutes it came back on, all is ...

Honestly is a fine on top of all of this necessary Australian government. I mean what a punishment! I then checked in to a stunning 5 star luxury boutique hotel and swanned around, calling room service, watching HBO, swimming in the pool, doing my nails and using the room's laptop and printer. I felt like a 5 foot 4 Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. ...

Dean thinks it thought it was a bread roll - charming hahaa Had some lovely Sri Lakan curry last night at a local resturant recommended by Francis. Weve then spent most of our last full day in Sri Lanka dozzing around the pool and just generally having a lazy ...
