After the fuss of losing 18 hours or so of the Sri Lanka leg of the trip we arrived at Colombo International Airport (in Negombo). We took cash out of the ATM as you do and called the hotel for a pick up. The owner is a Brit whose father was/is Sri Lankan. He moved to Sri Lanka 9 years ago and runs the place with his son.
