August 2006 - Sri Lanka

We fly into Colombo and as it is late we stay overnight and travel down to Galle on the south of the island the next day. The trip is pretty hair-raising stuff given that the rule seems to be that the biggest vehicles own the road and everyone else should just get out of the way. That and a lot of hooting! Galle was badly hit by the Tsunami and in contrast to Thailand, it is still in a bad way. The house we are staying in is about a 5 minute tuk tuk ride from the coast with a beautiful veranda and an even more stunning garden full of coconuts and monkeys.

Back to Europe
  Happy Birthday!
