    We got another short train ride to Unatawana, well to Galle station and then a tuk tuk to our guest house. We had a lovely modern room with a balcony overlooking the Main Street. We even had air con which was a bonus as we'd only paid for a fan :-). This was another beach town but completely different to Bentota. There was much more going on, lots of restaurants and nice little cafés and shops. The actual beach was a lot smaller with turquoise coloured water. As soon ...

    Hey Guys

    We decided that on the 26th that we should start heading back to the airport for our next fight to Kuala Lumpur, so we stopped off in Galle for two nights as we loved it soo much, and we did finally get to watch a cricket match, tho it was only a local one.
