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. Gelukkig konden we de Nederlandse beambte overtuigen dat we echt weer terug komen en wilde de meneer van de KLM …
Having left the rather dubious delights of Galle Face green behind I walked on past the rather Grand Presidential Secretariat Office, known locally just as Secretariat where indulged myself in another of my slightly odd travel pastimes. When I visit a country I always try to get a photo of the national flag, or indeed regional or city flags. These serve as an image for generic tips on my Virtual Tourist pages and are useful but have you ...
... Next was a walk through the feeding area. The only thing I really enjoyed about this was the babies. Some were very friendly and you could interact with them. There was one that was get hosed down that seemed to be in heaven. Then they had various ones chained up by themselves. My hope is that once the tourists are gone for the day, they let them go roam. I know I'm being way to optimistic, but this is what I choose to think. The orphanage does do a great service for a very ...
... after some real Granny gasping I admitted defeat and decided I would rather have a car crash whilst asleep to avoid potential flash back trauma. Anyway, I shouldn't have worried so much as after spending a few weeks here already I'm so used to it and our Akon-loving driver was probably quite conservative in his decisions to overtake.
... I tell you what, inside Galle's fort you could be mistaken that you were in Europe...it's beautiful with many boutique hotels and cafes but the prices kind of mirror Europe too.
Sooooo, after 2 weeks I am NOT an expert on Sri Lanka but the Top 3 things I am taking away from this experience are:

TravelPod Member ReviewsMarine Tourist Guest House Negombo
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.
