Hello Colombo

January 14, 2015


After experiencing the familiar fun times of Asian organised chaos in the airport, we managed to find a taxi ride through Colombo and on to the outskirts. The taxi driver was as relieved as we were that we managed to follow our scribbled instructions: past the buddha statue, turn right, carry on to the lake shore, past the rice paddy on your left, round the lake… He didn’t speak any English.

We have found ourselves great hospitality in a family friend’s brother and family for the first few days, before we head out on our adventures around this amazing island. Here’s some pictures from wandering around the lake at the end of the road. V happy to be here, let the adventures begin…
