    Travelling to Unawatuna

    A travel blog entry by allynut on May 24, 2015

    We got up without assistance of an alarm, and wondered down for a second morning of risky breakfast. The adorable hotel boy brought us teas and coffees, and seemed to remember our preferences from the day before. He brought us an amazing plate of fresh pineapple, but alongside, another plate of those weird apple, radish, peppery disgusting fruits we had to force down the morning previously. He obviously took the clear plate of politeness as; these girls love the skanky ...

    ... we drink beer here with our meals as it goes, in our opinion, best with piquant food, but we took a bottle of rose wine and that was a welcome change too!

    ... otherwise. Alas our first store sold shampoo but not beer, the second mission was accomplished and half of the third. The owner told us the Wine Store was one and half kilometres in the direction we had just travelled.

It's funny how we now were taking more notice of the local Tuk ...

    Woke up not feeling 100% due to my wife's insistence that we launched into the vino last night! Small brekkie and a general sort out before Ahmed arrived to take us on the short trip to Galle, fifteen mins away. Drove past the fish market and into town. Very close to the fort is the beautifully picturesque cricket ground where many test matches are played; it's Murali's favourite venue apparently. It was ...

    ... to projects with a mix of workshops run by SLV and visiting some of the projects we will be working at. It has been absolutely exhausting but amazing to see some of the work that I will be getting thoroughly involved in. Our main tasks include teaching children that are at development centres (or what we would call children's homes) English and visiting local mental illness hospitals to provide fun activities for the patients there. As cheesy ...
