    ... One of the main reasons we drove down was to see the park, so we figured, we'll pay to get in but skip the guide. As we walked in the entrance, we were told to buy our tickets in a separate building. We found out that there were tourist prices ($16 US) and resident prices ($3) per person and in order to get the resident price, we had to show an ID, pretty crazy!

Think they were very glad we seemed interested in the bird they had to show us.

    Back to Buru's for brunch and a nice cup of coffee.

    It seems a life time since the last blog. We left Sri Lanka in December and after three nights in Beeston with Anna we flew to Lanzarote. It was a strange feeling when we arrived there, almost like going home. As we had stayed there longer than anywhere else over the last 3 years ( 9 months ) perhaps it is not surprising. We had ...
