We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.

... the odd luxury resort nestled high up in the hills. Whilst on the southern side of the peak, it is was jungle as far as the eye could see.
We got slightly lost on the way up, as the path divided and we followed the wrong fork. It was hard to go too wrong though, so we were soon back on track. We reached the top of the first peak, but saw a slightly higher peak to the southern side that looked like it would offer better views. We scrambled our ...
... instruction to Prishan and Indika and laid flat across the ground. They followed suit.That didn’t work either. The bees found it easier to move down on the stationery figures lying down on the ground – and I still I had my t-shirt off. Eventually we said ‘F*** this! Let’s make a run for it!’
I managed to put my T-shirt back on and we ran. We ran and ran and ran until we could run no more. Then it seemed that we had actually outrun the ...
