The only thing I'm worried about it is being allowed to leave the airport because I've been booked right through to London and Sri Lankan security is tighter than a camels arse in a sandstorm. So I go up to the girl at the desk and I'm about to explain to her my situation when she takes my ticket, and walks off. Standing there scratching my arse wondering whats happening, she comes back a minute later with a form for me to fill out and tells me once I go through immigration a taxi will take me free of charge to a hotel where I will be given dinner and a room I can rest and shower.
I kept my mouth shut just incase they got me mixed up with someone else.
Turns out the hotel was a five star resort with swimming pool and private challet. :) Unfortunately because I wasn't expecting this little detour, I didn't even have a change of clothes with me let alone swimming trunks, so I couldn't go for a dip in the pool. I did enjoy the enormous dinner laid out for me though. :)
The taxi picked me up and brought me back to the airport (free of charge again) I checked back in, got on my flight and left Sri Lanka with a big smile on my face. :)
