    ... I could watching the two kids in the pool. Soon Six o clock rolled around and the sun sets are supposed to be amazing!, so we waited until 6:20 when the sun went behind the cloud bank and left us with little sunset.

    ... we couldn't believe our was the most beautiful Sri Lankan style house with a huge garden full of palm trees and exotic plants.

The first night we were the ...

Now I must go have a cold hot showers here, but that is fine with ...

    I had a bad morning, whether it was lack of sleep or Doxycycline (malaria tabs) making me strange, I don't know. Georgina frog marched me to find breakfast to hopefully kick start my brain. I couldn't think straight, my heart was pounding, and the constant nag of "Hello, good morning, how are you? You want taxi?" were starting to get rather rude responses!

    Possibly the hottest day we've had yet, so we escaped into Galle Maritime Archaeology Museum. We watched a short film ...
