      ... We climbed up to Lipton's seat which is the top of Sir Lipton's tea plantation (the man who owns lipton tea...obviously). There was an incredible view and we could see for miles! We had Sri Lankan tea at the top whIch kind of tasted like smoke but the view made it taste better. I didn't think I'd enjoy the tea plantations so much but I loved them. Best weekend so far! I'm home two weeks yesterday, can't believe how quick it's going. Maaad! Chloe ...

      ... some of the girls we hadn't met yet and as we were teaching them English, they were teaching us some Sinhala, I'm getting pretty good! Haha Although we got told the unit we are working in is for abused girls (and it is in some cases, there are girls as young as ten in there), one girl told us today that she was in because she had fallen in love with a boy and her mother told her it was shameful because they were ...

      her one of the first Dutch women in the country. Coster was
      subsequently raised to the post of Governer of Zeylon (Ceylon). Things
      then went badly wrong for him. He returned Trincomalee to the King but
      refused to give back any more ...

      ... wrecks around Galle, and their excavations. It was interesting and AIR CONDITIONED!

      The museum itself was on the dull side, too many info boards and not enough stuff. The building was cool: a huge open plan space, with high ceilings. The roof tiles were visible and light sneaked in through the cracks. If the shutters had been open it would have been flooded with light, but as it was, it was dim, warm and slightly suffocating.

      Escaping the warm fug of the museum, ...

      Whale watching (without the whales) and TURTLES!

      ... us again. We made our excuses and headed off back to the turtle hatchery early, where we found Jenny and a handler digging out some more babies to put in the bath. We then helped them select the babies to be released; we had to turn them over and check their belly buttons - if they were closed they were good to go!
