Where I stayed
Its so much more expensive here than India. They put a 10% service charge on everything. We usually tip but have been finding it too expensive in Goa to tip 10%. On the bottles of coke it says rs30 but they charge rs70 then you have to pay 10% on top of the rs70 not the rs30. Its really cheeky. People have been telling us the money goes to the waiters but we found out it doesn't.
Anyway we haven't done much in Hikkaduwa as its all quite expensive. We have been in the sea and its been weird having waves unlike Goa. We've been to couple of parties but the music was rubbish
We got to see a turtle laying her eggs which wasn't as good as it sounds. She got disturbed twice by people taking photos with a flash, then got stuck between some rope and wood. When she finally layed her eggs the police came and boxed them up telling everyone they were taking them to the hatchery which they didn't they sold them on as the guy at our hotel bought 2.
Both me and Sy got sun burnt! We both had patches where we missed putting suncream on. First time in 6 weeks!
