Where I stayed
The rest of the day was spent repeating the check in, security, dosing in departure lounges and boarding and leaving planes cycle repeatedly. A DULL day to say the least but when I got to the final flight, my patience was rewarded when I was upgraded to business class!!! I am not sure why, I looked an absolute scruff so I can only assume that the guy at the check in desk felt sorry for me! It was a great, but sadly very short journey. There was a monk two rows in front. Really wanted to take a picture but couldn't quite handle the embarrassment of being caught in the act! The views of the Indian coastline were amazing as we took off- the pictures don't do it justice but I took some anyway.
On arrival at Colombo I grabbed a taxi to Negombo. The hotel that Triney had booked was really nice but I was so tired having been travetlling through the night I went straight to sleep zzzZZZZzzzzzz
The next day I lazed around the pool at the hotel waiting for Triney to arrive. My luck must have been in, because as I returned to my sunbed I realised that a bird had done a massive s*** where I would have been laying!! I know they say its lucky for a bird to poo on you, but I was happy to have avoided it! The German guy next to me was very amused by the situation as I wiped the sunbed down! Triney arrived late afternoon and we went to dinner and chatted about a load of rubbish. Why changed the habit of a lifetime eh?!
