Kalutara is a nice little town based on Gale road which is the main link road up to Colombo. It took us 1.5 hours on a nice local bus to get here.

It turnes out Mum and Davo are staying 5km away but it is not a problem.

Polina and i looked for somewhere to have a drink and assess our options when i started getting hastled by a local guy trying to find me accomodation. I stupidly lisened to him which means you have been drawn in and can escape! He walked a little with me telling me about the Budhist holiday (which i already knew aboout) and then started warning me about dengue feaver and telling me how i needed this mystical substance 'citronella'!!! Of course i know what that is but i went along with him where i was greeted with a handshake and s smiley man wanted to sell me a little bottle of the stuff for 650 Rupies! Of course i wasnt having any of it and instantly the price halved to 300. I wasnt interested at this point so this man is not a man who can be trusted! However, he did introduce us to another guy whos house we have been staying in for the past 4 days.

This guy also told us not to trust the original guy and looks out for our best interests. We have a nice room and bathroom and access to the kitchen so i can cook hurrah!!

It has been a nice 4 days and i got to meet my parents :-) We caught a bus over to their place but they were not there but after a little walk along the beach i herd Mum calling my name from her balcony. It was realy nice to see them again. Davo has kindly paid for us to stay at their place for the next 4 days so im just catching up on the log before we get to the expensive place! We have had a couple of days over their already and it is very nice, we have been getting busses there and hitching back - it has been fun - the last two times have been in a lorry and a nice air con people carrier with a tonking sound system!

So thats it realy, a nice time is being had and we will be in a luxury resort for the next 4 days :-)


Luxury resort was amazing! People changing the towels, people bringing you food, drinks and all unlimited as it was fully inclusive thanks to Davo!

We have been in the sea every day, swiming pool every day and i have loved every second of it. It was really nice to see Mum and Davo again and we had a fantastic time playing games in the pool and cards and pool in the evening.

Now on the 14th Mum and Davo have gone home and i am a little sad but looking forward to the next 10 days ahead with Polina before she goes home.

We have decided today to go to Hikkadua which i a train ride away - shouldnt be to taxing for our lazy bodies :-)
