I can not recommend this hotel enough, I mainly chose it because it was close to a really great friend, but I had no idea what a hidden gem this place was going to be. It is tucked away down a small lane but once you are there, you have your own little villa that is surrounded by gardens where you can spend hours watching the birds, squirrels, roosters and their hens, and best of all the monkeys are all around you.
The staff at this hotel can't do enough for you, they are there when you need them but manage to stay out of site when you just want to sit and relax.
The breakfast is amazing and you can have it at any time you like.

This afternoon was swimming (I'm scheduled to do this twice a week) we ...
... Sundays and when visiting temples. Cricket is not just a sport it is a way of life. And it us played anywhere and everywhere at any time. Traffic is directly (mostly) by traffic cops and running water is not common. Every stream, Brooke and river will be virtually guaranteed to have at least knew family of bathers present in it. From as far as I can tell each family bathed separately with males and females having separate areas. They also bath in ...
... closer to 2 hours. We attracted plenty of attention at the train station, possibly the most of the whole trip. Waiting on the station for half an hour, everyone was checking us out, seeing what we were all about. The train itself was really busy. It was set out like a tube train, but the doors stayed open, which sent a refreshing breeze through the carriage as we rolled slowly along the coast. We were still attracting plenty of attention, as we stood on ...
... known as Big Ben in London, although that is an incorrect term as Big Ben refers to the hour bell, but that is another story.
Five years later, the light was added to the top to replace an earlier beacon dating from 1820. As Colombo grew and the buildings got taller they eventually eclipsed the light and so a new one had to be built nearer the coast. I cannot imagine who would have given planning permission to build a ...
