Spent the rest of Thursday afternoon in town with Kaitlin, found the 'pants man' as the other girls in the house call him. In the old traditional market where the locals shop is a man with an amazing array of fabrics and saris. He will make any type of clothing you want. I got two shirts made out of the most beautiful silk. While the quality of the work is not great, for the $5 that we paid for them they are perfect just to throw on.
Had a lovely dinner together in the house - just to four girls now as one left the day before. We are starting to get to know each other a bit better and conversations are flowing a bit easier
We had an early start on Friday morning. Three of us got the 6.15am train into Colombo and then onto Galle down on the south-west coast. It is a beautiful fort town build in the 1600's by the Portuguese and Dutch and then finally the British. We are staying at a beautiful hotel, which is really cheap by our standards for the quality. Of to the beach and maybe watch a cricket game (Sri Lanka v New Zealand) and some more sightseeing. Another early start on Sunday to head back to the house.
