Jan 14, 2018 - Beach bumming, etc.

After a few weeks of tromping around in hiking shoes and eating roti, it was finally time for the beach! Mirissa is a coastal village on the southern tip of the island, famous for its soft sandy beach, fresh seafood, and whale watching. Ugghh... If we must! Right off the bat, Mirissa treated us well. We started with a mouth watering crab curry on the beach, then ran in to our kiwi friends that we had spent NYE with in Ella. So we all spent the night people watching the partying tourists until the wee hours of the morning. It turned out to...

Feb 21, 2006 - Sri Lanka - Mirissa

The Beach After a lazyish day in Ella yesterday spent wandering, updating this damn website, drinking tea, eating lunch, er, having a leg massage, drinking more tea, playing cards, drinking beer (to reassert my masculinity after leg massage ) and er, drinking more tea, it was time to leave Ella and head for the hot and mosquito-ridden south coast. Fortunately rather than suffer a further series of painful and dehabilitating bus journeys I'd managed to blag a lift with an Australian couple who moved in to the guesthouse after the Dutch...
