We had booked a room in another place for that night but seeing that it was in the middle of nowhere we asked the taxi driver to take us somewhere better and this was his choice. It was ok for what we paid, air condition absolutely needed in sri lanka was provided. Right next to the beach, swimming pool nothing special. I would probably not repeat but it was a good last minute option

were positioned at table meant that the scammer could not see the draft
text he was actually showing me. It really was quite ...
... it's definately not an easy undertaking. This week, there's a big United Nations function here in Colombo with many heads of different world organizations expected to attend. So we are scrambling to get ready for that. It will be a neat experience. Next week we have a choice of working in youth development, slum hospital, or an orphanage. I'm going to try and spend time in all of them. Ill try and put some pictures up on my next post. Miss you ...
... Sydney. 3 cancelled reservations over 2 weeks from 3 different companies and now Air Asia's website wouldn't accept any of my bank cards. I ended up spending a day heading into Colombo just to find their office and buy my tickets directly.
