Now we are in Galle.
There is an old town here inside the walls of a fort built by the Dutch. It has a European/Islamic/British feel and is a beautiful place. The architecture varied and interesting.
Its nice just wandering around but really hot so all the tourists have a slightly wilted appearance.
Met up with our Danish friends yet again so more dining and talking last night. Their Hotel is in a beautiful old building with stunning architecture and made me feel a bit depressed when we returned to our little room.

Today we went for a day trip to Unawatuna, a beach 10km from here. The place to go if you want to see hundreds of fat, sunburnt western tourists on banana loungues. It was horrible :(

Hi Travellers. Liked your pics and interesting comments. Beachside place looks peaceful and restful. Hope your accommodation is not too downmarket. Where your friends stayed looked good. Mia well and happy. Gone to Eastlands after school. Bye B & D
