My "new best friends" the film crew had departed but the day was not yet done and a couple of other things to share with you. You will find I make a lot of "new best friends" on the road, just about daily in fact. I just had to post the first image as it is definitely in my cute kids category that I seem to get so many images of in Asia. This little chap was so adorable and we spent a vey enjoyable time with me trying to teach him how to salute of all things. He mastered it in ...
... get in the Christmas mood. Tour the fort area and Galle Face Green, all the roads have sandbags round them, are we expecting another Tsunami ? no, it's a Red Bull night race, with an F1 car demonstration laps. Well I need a birthday present, we book. Some of Colombo has bootstrapped itself into a 1st world city, sit and have supper in a wine bar, could have been anywhere. We couldn't face another curry, so had hamburger with potato wedges, what good food. Back to ...

Behind here you reach the South Beira Lake with its island temples and a man made island housing a modern band stand type construction. ...
... the country that many of them wanted to escape to. All around the town we saw massive bill boards and posters in the Tamil language telling Sri Lankans not to come to Australia. It's a pity that most of the Tamils can not read. Our hard earn tax dollars at work.

TravelPod Member ReviewsTangerine Beach Hotel Kalutara
The hotel was very good. Location is right next to the ocean but beware if you enter the sea, as there is a shelf and you drop into the sea. The food was good and the rooms comfortable.
