          Nice hotel on the hillside overlooking the lake in Kandy. Hotel has a resident troupe of monkeys who visit, so doors and windows should never be left open unless you like being mugged by monkeys (seriously they will come into your room and steal anything that isnt nailed down!). Lovely staff, my second visit to this hotel. Great views over the city. Would recommend.

          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.

          Arrived in Colombo at 04:30am after a 10 hour flight with Sri Lankan airlines. Very comfortable in business class except for the screaming kid in economy. Slept for 5 hours after a couple of glasses of champagne and a cointreau after dinner, all very civilised!

          Got up super early (which was hard after going to bed at 1am), needed to be ready by 6am to make our train. One of Narada's Uncles drove us in his van to catch the train from somewhere closer to Ganemulla instead of having to go all the way back to Colombo. We ran onto the train, surfboard, bags, kids and all. Although the train ride provided us …

          ... They said they were heading out for dinner and although I wasn't going to eat, I went along anyway. Turns out, they had all met in Colombo a few days before and so had planned the next weeks travels already. Unfortunately, it wasn't the direction that I wanted to head, so I missed the boat there but never mind. It was nice to see a few people and chat for an hour or so.

There also was a quiet section of river where we all jumped out of our rafts and floated downstream for approx. 600m. After returning to our rafts we finished our trip soaking wet but with big smiles on our faces. In the late afternoon some members of our group took part in an optional jungle walk. Tonight we have a BBQ dinner by the ...

          ... Went out to eat in the evening and got ripped off for drinks, again. Asked for juice, got beer. Language barriers eh?

          Following day was spent arguing over the memory card virus. There's probably more important things to life but it would be nice to be able to keep up with Travelpod. I know some of you prefer pics to text. Liza thinks she's now fixed it. I might just go out and see.

          Pictures to follow. Maybe.
