I have done nothing but eat all day. Omelette and chips for breakfast washed down with an ice coffee. A milkshake later followed by a huge pizza for lunch. Later when I got back to Galle the day was completed with a huge Chicken and Mango salad. Back in the B&B a double portion of Curd and treacle. Fat as a tick.
I arrived in Unawatuna on 27th. I have been really lucky with most of the places that I have stayed as they have been clean, cheap and generally the owners have been great people. This is no different and the food is great home cooking. For the next 3 days life doesn't change much. Early morning swim, breakfast, read, swim, Lunch, read, swim, shower, dinner. Repeat. I am not sure why it was voted in the top 10. It is pretty but, the water is warm and crystal clear. I think a lot of damage was done during the Tsunami in 2004 and a lot of the beach has been washed away.
My time is running out in Sri Lanka and would really like to do some diving so I will head up the west coast where I hear there are a few good spots.
