Still, not too bad and a fairly uneventful run along the newly opened expressway deposited me in one of the three bus stations in the Pettah which is a typically manic market area in the old part of town.
It was here that I noticed something interesting. I ...
... decided the best thing to do was to stay as close to the airport as possible overnight. I got off the train into a dark and rainy night, tired but in a town only 6 miles from Colombo airport; the airport is actually 30 km North of the capital. I hadn't booked anywhere to stay as I assumed there would be lots of places and so asked a tuk-tuk driver for some direction on a cheap place to sleep. He said he knew somewhere cheap, around £6 which ...
