... in cricket! We travelled back home to Panadura by train which was probably the highlight of the weekend. Sri Lankan trains are probably the most amazing thing ever but there's definitely a reason we don't have them in the UK! The doors remain open so many of the locals just sit on the steps or swing out of the door. We all had a go (don't worry mum I was careful) and it was so fun and the views were beautiful.

The table was groaning under the weight of the curies that they brought out to go with an absolute mound of red rice. There was dhal, some sort of green veg, potato curry, aubergine and tuna. It was sensational food and it cost 200 rupees (1) a head! It was also an experience that I will never forget - I don't think they get many tourists in ...
