There was some confusion on arrival about our room and we were given a rather strange layout of a room on the top floor; there was an empty unfinished room in front of the bedroom. After one night, we were moved to a room on the first floor. My only complaint about this room is the glass bathroom - there are curtains but it's just plain strange. The TV did not work for the entire length of our stay (one week). You can use the pool in the hotel over the road for not a lot of money. The family that run this hotel are very lovely people and we were even invited for a traditional Sri Lankan meal on one of the evenings. The hotel is in stages of being upgraded and when it's finished, if they get it right, it will be a lovely hotel.

... past us every other minute. It was hot, no A/C and some bright spark decided to turn all the fans off. Perfect. To top it off, I witnessed a adolescent kid messing around and leaning right out of the doorway, whilst holding onto the rails, almost have his head taken off by a pole that he didn't see coming. I'm still not sure how he didn't lose his head, as he soon after collapsed onto the train floor with blood spilling out of ...
... rate at Hambantota so I think Ian Bell will come in to open.
Attached some pictures of the view from the hotel and the CCC plus the Police ground, bit like police academy, look in the background.
Right, back to a cold beer and speak soon, hope it's not too cold back home, 29 today here!!!
Hope your trip is going well Andy, sounds good and I may consider that when I retire!
... Misschien is het echt geen slecht idee om op zo'n mooie vrachtwagen mee te rijden. The trains who are rumbling by less than 50m from our room, between us and the Indian Ocean, are packed until the roof. People are hanging out of the train through windows and doors. This looks very promising for the day after tomorrow! Maybe taking a beautiful truck isn't such a bad idea after all. Ons eerste 'hotel' is amper de naam hotel waardig en zeker de naam Ocean ...
... we had been! Still, we would never have found our driver ourselves so I guess you could say it was money well spent if you wanted to put a positive spin on it! Following a very hairy 2 hour drive we arrived at the Millenium Foundation to see the elephants. We had chosen to stop here rather than Pinnewalla as the coach tours were all going there and also we had read reports that ...
... separate tip that I love the Topaz Bar in the Sapphire Hotel in Wellewatta and that I had had an excellent bar meal there as well as sharing some equally tasty bar nibbles. When Thilak, the lovely bar manager, informed me that the hotel restaurant on the third floor was open to non-residents I thought I would give it a try some evening.
I got the lift to the third floor, entered and waited to be seated which was never going to be a problem as the place was pretty ...
