This is the first of several posts about Sri Lanka where we traveled last week (can't believe I was in an ayurvedic spa a week ago!). This trip cannot be contained in one post, as our itinerary included several very different, awesome places that I've got to blab about! We first went to Negombo, which was a convenient stopover, as it is a beach and fishing community, just an hour from the airport in Colombo. Since we arrived very early in the morning on a Thursday, we waited until Friday before taking off for the tea country. So, we enjoyed a combination of hanging out in the pool of the hotel (Jet Wing Beach), walking around town and checking out the local batik workshop. This was a great place to serve as an introduction to our adventure - friendly people, relaxing beach atmosphere in a real non-touristy community.
