Anyhoo I'm in Galle at the moment -- after a long day coming down from Nuwara Eliya in the mountains and damn its hot. The fort --which protected the old town from the tsunami is a lovely wandering spot filled with dutch era buildings -- and jewellers ready to part tourists from cash...or travellers cheques....or credit cards! Tomorrow I head through rather than to Colombo and overnight in Negombo near to the airport.
So the highlights? Elephant watching, The slog up Sri Pada/Adams Peak to watch the dawn, The warmth of the people everywhere, the walks around Haputale, The Bo tree at Anuradhapura -- but the whole experience has been a joy. I'm gutted that I didnt travel to Sri Lanka before India -- I dont think that you could find a more gentle and laidback introduction to South Asia.
Like the man said....I'll be back...
Hasta la vista
Oh and happy nearly birthday ravey davey!!
