We have arrived at Sri lanka national airport with no transport and no accomodation and lucky for us it was raining as well!! Anyway, once we had doged the 1000 taxi drivers waiting in arrivals we picked up our first Tut Tut - three wheel rickshaw/taxi. Our senses overloaded, trying to take everything in and negoatiate a good price. We ended up being dropped at the wrong end of the beach and had to walk for half an hour to our first port of call - Ocean View. Basic but at least it had hot water and a balcony. We stayed here for two days exploring the local town, fort and fish market. We met a really cool guy at the market called Ivan who showed us round a little and advised us to buy the fresh fish, take it to a local restaurant and have them cook it for us... imagine doing that int he UK. Next stop - Negombo!
