Sri Lanka and The Maldives

Lankanfinolhu, aka Paradise Island

Malé Airport - not quite Terminal 3

Home. Somewhere amongst the palms are the rooms.

And, in the other direction, the view from the room.

One of the bars. As a local, The Prince of Wales has a lot of work to do.

Just (eye) Kandy

Nick showing off the grounds of the odious British High Commission. What hell he is going through for the taxpayer, Queen and country.
Stopping off at the Elephant Orphanage
They walked more than two by two ....
Ahhh. The Hill Country. They know how to shine a floor in the Queen's Hotel.
Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. That there is a Javan fig tree. Right in the middle of the photo is Justin. He's six foot tall. The tree is 1800m2. And it's still growing. My guide book was written when it was only 1600m2.

Back in Colombo

The Indian Ocean, as seen while sipping a cold beer, eating warm cashew nuts, from the verandah of the Galle Face Hotel. By night.

Mount Lavinia. (That's a place, not an instruction.)

Galle was divided into three parts

Behind the Galle Face hotel in Colombo is the Galle Road. Follow that south about 80 miles. Not quite Lords, but not quite St Johns Wood either.
You wouldn't want to drive, take the train. The trains would not worry even Connex South Central. Waterloo, on the other hand, this certainly isn't ....
