... over on the East coast compared to
up in the hills and not as much sea breeze as I need. Fortunately we had A/C in
our guesthouse and the owner was very friendly and did a cracking breakfast, my
first toast and jam of the trip and it was very welcome! Unfortunately, the guidebook
lied, it is not high season in Batticaloa, there was no diving available and
the town is really unimpressive. However we were living just 5 minutes from a

Wow! Our adventure in Sri Lanka sure did start off with a bang! We literally caught all modes of transport possible to arrive in Arugam Bay for sunrise. Wondering if we were ever going to make it we surely have some fond and interesting memories of getting there in one piece. The most funny one (not at the time but now looking back) was the train ride. Picture the traditional trains you see in movies or photos of India or Sri Lanka, packed to the brim, quite squished ...
