    This hotel is not as nice as the last but still really good. It's a bit more of a resort hotel so it has more of a buzz and more people but is still pretty quiet.

    ... the north, many areas are still recovering from the after effects of civil war and this is fairly obvious, you can still see many bullet holes in the buildings and lots of rubble. It also seems more based around agriculture as there is little to do, so it looked like people had plots of land with a tiny building and space for animals, we also saw a few ploughed fields.

    ... no idea that I would enjoy working with disabled so much, but iv really connected with them. Since I did that disabled project in Colombo, where they actually had trained staff working with the people, I learned alot from them, so I feel I can actually do something in the disabled home here in Kandy where there is no staff, and the people are just left alone. Well, I should grab some breakfast! Breakfast is really good here. Eggs and toast with coffee. Take ...
