Becoming a Tourist Attraction in Arugam Bay

A travel blog entry by lucifrost


... past an elephant just metres away from the road (see pic). The tuk tuk driver was really nervous and didnt want to go near it because they are so temperamental but I couldnt resist getting out and getting a photo.

Finally we arrived in Arugam Bay to a very nice half Italian half Dutch woman who was brought up and worked in England before marrying a local and moving out to Sri Lanka. She is really nice and cooks great food fresh for our breakfast and dinner. ...

A travel blog entry by kate2013
