    We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Our kids were extremely happy because the internet was great--the first hotel in Sri Lanka that we could say that about. The food was good, the beds were comfy, the staff were all really friendly. We even had visitors on our balcony--monkeys. We enjoyed watching them, but we were also told to keep our doors closed because they would come inside if we didn't. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and the view was lovely.

    Beautiful location. Comfortable stay. Just 2 things that makes me not give any rating better than 3. 1. Lack of additional blankets owing to full capacity in the hotel, not acceptable 2. Not so great food.

    ... see a GP costs 500 LKR (2.50) a
    pop. The other reason it’s busy is because you don’t need a referral or
    appointment to see an oncologist, if you turn up you will be seen the same day.
    This makes the failing UK target of 2 week cancer referrals look distinctly

    There was a very upsetting case on my first ward round in
    oncology here. A 50 year old patient from a rural village in the hills presented
    with a stage ...

    The complex itself was a bit of a disappointment, and not just because of the go-see-a-tooth-we-won't-actually-show-y ou thing. I had read in my guidebook that there was a dead Rajah (prince) who had been STUFFED and MOUNTED and on display in a shrine on the Temple grounds. I love dead things and I love tacky, so obviously this was the shrine for me. I ...

    ... The entrance fee was 15 each though, and 60 between all of us was way to much to enter a historical site. We were perfectly happy being a bit more adventurous, taking a route through jungle to scramble up neighbouring Pidurangala rock, sitting in the rain, with panoramic views of the plains and Lions Rock Temple, and only a 1.50 fee each!

    The guesthouse in Sigaryia was run by Roy, an accommodating, helpful guy from Galle, who prepared a ...

Had noodles cooked in the Birko again for dinner tonight, nice for a change. Last night we went to a nice restaurant and had cocktails, and dinner while watching a live band of 3 guitars, and a bongo drum. I tried to get Mark to ask if he could jam with them, but he wouldn't do ...
