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.

Eventually we sneak away, pleading tiredness, for a two hour break where Liza sleeps for a bit and I get quickly ****** on the vodka. Then it's dinner time. Liza makes her way down to dinner first to be confronted by more cousins and family. None of whom speak to her as she is made to sit in ...
... Albert & Rich) came into the hostel, on the first day of a four month adventure of their own. We soon got chatting about Sri Lanka and travelling in general. As is pretty much standard, this developed into a trip to the pub - in this case, the Cricket Club Cafe. The Cricket Club Cafe, is a cricket themed pub run by two Australians. The clientele seemed to be a mixture of locals, expats and travellers. We had a couple of beers, which ...
... and live cricket.
That's about as far as Columbo goes, sorry.
Oh I lie - the train journey there from Mirissa was awesome, hugging the shore line for most of the journey. The train was empty at the start but I knew this would be quite the reverse after Galle and so got comfortable by the window, facing forwards on the left hand side so as to be on the West as we went up the ...
Another morning, another early rise and again I find myself in front of the computer composing. My body clock, which is pretty out of synch at the best of times, appears to be taking longer than usual to adjust and I find myself going to bed and waking up pretty early, at least by my standards. This may be no bad thing as Sri Lanka appears not to be a place of late night revellery anyway. Just to give you a little context I am sitting with the ...
