... The Schofield Place, after a 19th century governor of Sri Lanka, it's pretty jaw dropping. We even have our own butler, called Gayan. By now it's 8pm and we're pretty tired, but a glass or two of duty-free vino tinto and a bubble bath later and we're all set for dinner in their restaurant, called Haven.

... top looking across at the city I see eagles flying in graceful circles overhead, and a huge shoal of fish swimming very close to the surface. More honey and lemon and the poor invalid manages to make it out for some dinner and another early night. Fortunately we have a day at sea tomorrow so he can continue his recuperation. Hopefully he will start feeling better soon. Ironic isn't it, 4 months across Asia, trouble free, less than a week on a ship and he has man flu. ...
