Dalmunta Gardens Day one I relaxed with an ayrevada massage and oil treatment, the gardens are lush and stunning, the resort is peaceful and friendly. The restaurant is situated on the river and the water monitors wander across the lawn. Day two I read and relaxed by the pool and in my private garden. I caught up on my reading kingdom of strangers. The garden to the one bed bungalow is private and enclosed by a full headgear ferns and blossoming plants of pink and ...

Apparently, their chances increase if you are happy when you release them...and we certainly were! When we returned to our guest house, we had ...
... into their territory or bark at the crab-fishers picking crabs straight from the beach.
Needless to say, our effort to go to bed early and thereby reset the jetlag was in vain. So today, after some lovely coconut bread and curry we have been wandering Panadura with Jambo. Pictures will come at a later point.
Tomorrow we will jump the train to Bentota to continue or trip along the south west coast of Sri Lanka.
