Day 29

A travel blog entry by lou_sinton


We (Kusum, Dulari, Nelam, Sulo, a rather large sewing machine and I) left Colombo at the absurd hour of 3am for a five and a half hour drive to Polonnaruwa, in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka. The purpose of the trip was a follow up evaluation programme consisting of house visits to see how the women were getting on with their businesses since the entrepreneurial training programme ...

The Trip Story in Sri Lanka

... meters from the waiting area. We ran and chase the train, it’s a must other wise the train leaves you. Some people get off from the train but some were trying to jump into the train. There was no queuing line for this, everybody tries to do it at the same time. We couldn’t get a seat on the Train, we didn’t care so much, as long as the train is running well and we no more
delayed. The view was nice, this is the first time experience ...

The one where Toby is a UN youth delegate...

... utterly bizarre.

After the glitz and glamour of the opening ceremony, the following day was the start of the conference proper, which was taking place in an upmarket district in Colombo. We arrived bright and early, and with some apprehension as to what to expect. The structure of the day began with a talk in the main plenary, an enormous room with a sparkling stage at its apex. Frankly, the talk was pretty dry, and easily the most forgettable aspect of ...

Good Vibrations

... national holiday celebrated in both Tamil and Sinhala culture. This offered a great opportunity to explore other parts of the island, particularly given that the vast urban sprawl of Colombo offers little in the way of culture and scenery. By way of easing in, we set off first for the sleepy east-coast surf resort of Arugam Bay. Public transport comes to a virtual standstill over new years day here, so we figured where better to get stranded than the beach! After ...

Sigiriya to Kandy and the Hill Country

A travel blog entry by patriciareiner


... any religious site as a woman now, you have to cover yourself from the tip of your toe to the top of your head. I respect the local customs of course, but I don't really get it. Well anyway. In Sigiriya everything is outside so you don't have to dress up, which is lucky because it was about 35 degrees with a humidity of 90% and by the time we got down we were marinated in our own sweat. Living in England this is something I take great joy in so I am not complaining, I ...

    Un hôtel très propre, très confortable. Une super piscine bien appréciée. Restaurant OK. Déjeuner un peu cher, sous forme de buffet, OK. Lors de notre passage l'internet ne fonctionnait pas, déception. On a demandé un rabais sur la chambre qu'on nous a accordé. Personnel sympatique. Super salle de bain, grande et propre !
