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 !

Tomorrow, we head to Sri Lanka's second biggest city, Kandy!
... the way to travel for the majority of locals so I counted myself very lucky if I managed to grab a seat. I also counted myself even more grateful if I made it to my destination in one piece as the driving on the roads is ridiculous!! The horn is used for anything, at all times, and no one gives way as it is everyone out for themselves on the road as they think they have right of way. I have wondered many times what their driving tests are like (if they have them). ...
... as it only takes a couple of hours. Rather than buying official tickets which cost around 3300 lkr each we were to pay the tuk tuk driver 5500 all up for the two of us and he would use this to bribe the security guards who check tickets at these sites. The savings were too tempting to do the right thing so we were on our way! The ruins were beautiful, all covered in bright green moss and with jungle surrounding them. The tuk tuk driver was great to have, much better than ...
