Been in Sri Lanka a week now and spent in the south at the old portugese city of Galle and here at the beach resort town of Hikkaduwa. When I arrived in Galle is was to coinside with the start of the final test match between England and Sri Lanka, so I spent most of the first 5 days sitting on teh ramparts or in the ground weatching cricket, at least that was the plan but mother nature had other ideas and quite a lot of time was sitting in cafes waiting for the rain to stop. Also enjoyed wandereing the old city and finding some excellent small resturants, combined with the odd cocktail at the Galle Fort Hotel at about the price of a weeks accomodation!
Now moved to Hikkaduwa which has a beautiful beach with lots of resturants and bars streched along it. Yesterday I did a scuba dive to look around the wreck of an old sunken steam powered oil tanker which was fascinating. Now its christmas day and I may had difficulty finding somewhere to surve turkey with all the trimmings so I may have to settle for some BBQ seafood.
Hope you are all having a good time over the christmas period.
