    The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved. The food is excellent but you may be sharing it with chipmunks and crows as some of the guests insist on feeding them this needs to be stopped. Facilities are second to none, a full gym, spa, two souvenir shops and large swimming pool.

    ... a few hours there just gazing and trying to take in all the amazing detail. It was a perfect balmy temperature with a gentle breeze rustling the leaves as I left and wandered back down in the fading daylight. At the base of the rock is another huge Buddha, and leading to that a procession of orange monks/ disciples, 108 in all, through the garden that was quite stunning. Then an evening with pleasant dinner company with a guy from Sydney ...

    ... ribbon. We returned to the beach bar that evening for dinner, we took a table on the beach but had to retire undercover as it started to rain. It didn't last long but we were fine in our new surroundings and for a good part of our meal, the only diners. Well, off to bed and too dream of another adventure tomorrow up the coast by Tuk Tuk, I think I feel the title of a book coming on, 'With the wind in your (grey) hair, up the coast of Sri Lanka on three ...

    ... on and watch the monkeys and birds whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery. Heaven! Had a swim and then coffee chez nous. Very warm but there was a sudden rain deluge which cleared the air. Got ready for dinner and then up to the bar for drinks. It all looks fabulous; had a fantastic supper and then back to our bungalow. So quiet and peaceful. Looking forward to Galle tomorrow and more R & R here after that. The environs of KK remind me a bit of ...

    ... home. No car journey in Sri Lankan is without the fear of imminent death but this one was particularly bad. It was dark and a government bus (who always drive ridiculously) was overtaking another bus and they both came hurtling towards us on the wrong side of the road, Sanjay had to run the jeep off the road to keep us from a head-on collision, we exhaled as we'd been holding our breath expecting a crunch at any moment - bloody good driving by ...

    ... as another child who is smaller. According to Kelly a 28 year old Australian girl today was a really good day as all of the urine soaked bed sheets were changed from the cots and the mattresses aired. The three hours that I was there not one of the children were given a drink, I assume it is because the more they drink the more they will need to be changed. Lunch time consisted of one of the workers feeding the what I can only describe as feeding animals ...
