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.

Fortunately, they held the ...

"I had been mooching about the Fort area and had indeed walked all the
way in from Wellewatta which is a fair old hike and I fancied a beer. No
surprise there. I saw a sign indicating Tap Bar and that was the
decision made. It was down steps, like some of the "dive bars" I ...
... door like a spaniel with it's head out of the car window. He was happy. After a few hours rattling along beside an azure ocean we reached Weligama, hopped off and tuktuk'd our way to Mirissa.
Ensconced in a nice but expensive guesthouse (they are all expensive there) we set off looking for this deserted, pristine beach. I have no idea which plucky sole climbed all those palm trees to fit them all with different coloured rope lights but hats off to them. ...

Twenty minutes later, we arrived at the gallery. I was hungry, but wanted to peruse the craftsman store first. It was a mix between Pier 1 and Pottery Barn, but everything was made by locals; My kinda place.
Happy I made the right choice, I made my wait to the restaurant. “Just one”, I said to the host.
He sat me down at a table near the front. At the table next to but sitting across from, was a pretty, tall, thin girl that had ...
