        ... our beach vacation was feeding the sea turtles that visit the shores here. These giant turtles are estimated to be around 250 years old!

        On our last day, we took a Tuk Tuk to the Tsunami Photo Museum. In a small shack that was once a family home, photos and handwritten accounts of the December 26th, 2004 Tsunami line the walls. Sri Lanka experienced the tragic loss of 40,000 lives that day. The accounts are personal and touching. This ...

        The unwitting re-creation of scenes from the videos of Duran Duran's second studio album continued.

        But even without nostalgia for a band and an album which defined cool for me well before I knew what cool was (thanks in large part to the power of an older brother with his own bedroom, his own record player - and even regular Saturday morning pay cheques!), Polonnaruwa was fascinating.

        ... we may have been put off attempting it on just 3 hours sleep. Instead, we raised a toast to the first and last time we would ever climb Adams Peak. There is a local saying that states, ‘If you have never climbed Adams Peak then you’re a fool, but if you have climbed it twice you’re a bloody fool’.

        So it was that, with the Adam's Peak challenge put behind us, we said farewell to Alex (hopefully not for long as we are all heading to Thailand next) ...

        This morning, we checked out of our little guesthouse, and caught a very crowded, very hot public bus 90 minutes to the ancient capital of Polonnaruwa (note: it's quite OK if you can't pronounce these place names.

Polonnaruwa is the second city in Sri ...

        ... none the less enjoyed the day and everyone asking if it was just one man to all 5 women! That evening we headed to a guest house nearer Sigiryia, a family room for all 6 of us was nice and cosy for valentines night! Another early start and we headed to Sigiryia Rock, only a quick stop off as no one was keen for the hike as the other girls have Adams peak and worlds end ahead of them. Then to Dambulla for the rock cave temples. At the top of the hill (Lucy didn't ...
