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.

De reis verloopt tot nu toe nog niet helemaal vlekkeloos, maar het vanaf nu alleen maar beter worden denken we dan maar! Het blijkt dat het tegenwoordig verplicht is (ook bij het vertrek uit NL) om je reisschema uitgeprint mee te hebben.

... t many restaurants but on walking back to the hotel (which doesn't yet have a name) we found a restaurant called 'Sheetha' which seemed to make any kind of Indian/Sri Lankan food you could ask for, I settled with a Vegetable Kurma (which despite my pleas for no spice, knocked my socks off) and a delicious pineapple juice. That evening we decided to relax in the hotel room, listening to the dulcet tones which is an Asian ...
... sounds expensive then you soon realise it isn't, and the whole lot came to about £5! I also had to go and get a phone, just got a simple call and text one as really want to not just use the data part of my phone all the time, I Facebook way too much and feel that I really shouldn't always be on my phone here, although may regret that as data is actually so cheap! Had our first experience of getting lunch, I had what was best ...
... will know that I love looking about old churches and I have an interest in military history and specifically war graves and memorials. For those new readers, welcome, and I've just told you!
That was the interest for me here. The Church itself is pretty plain but the memorials were a perfect example of maintaining the Empire over the centuries. Again, in the interests of not duplicating effort, here is my tip but I should add that all these ...
... my travels seen black shampoo before. I kid you not, black as a raven's wing. I suppose the marketing implication is that it will keep Sri Lankans lovely black hair, well, lovely and black but I fear I am far too far gone on the greying front for that to have any realistic chance of working. I am truly a "greybeard" which in times past would have been an indication of wisdom but it appears that has passed me by as well.
As I said, my hotel ...
