Christmas found us in Sri Lanka this year. Our good friend Barbara had moved there earlier this year for work, so it was a great excuse to visit here and explore the country.

Luckily, Barbara did a WHOLE bunch of planning for us, and had arranged for transport and hotels for our visit so all we had to do was show up and enjoy. Also, she packed a goodie bag FILLED with Christmas Cookies for our long road trips!! Not to bad a way to spend the holiday if you ask me. We spent a few days in the Cultural Triangle area seeing old temples and sites, and then a few days in Bentota which is on the beach, followed by a quick ½ day in Galle which proved to be the most charming old town we saw and I want to visit again in the future. Also we spent a week eating wonderful Sri Lankan rice and curry which was delish!

The only slight downside was the weather. It was raining season and we had LOTS of rain. I mean, 4 days worth. Drizzle, heavy downpour, drizzle, heavy downpour, repeat. For four days. But, that did not deter us, in fact it made the temperature sublimely wonderful, so I love it. It was cool, but OK in shorts and we spent a week NOT sweating. After the heat of Singapore, it was great. There was only one day the weather kept us from seeing much, so we too that as a Spa day, way to make lemonade from lemons huh? J

So, Merry Christmas (belated) to you and yours, hope you had a great one like we did, spent with family and friends surround by laughter and love.
