When it rains… it pours in the tropics.

And that’s why you get a free shower when you are out and about 🙄

And this is the price I paid for the pictures I just shared.

Went for a walk and got a free bonus shower out of it 😉

The rain would not stop us from exploring the city.

Galle is known for Galle Fort, the fortified old city founded by the Portuguese colonists in the 16th century. Stone sea walls, expanded by the Dutch, encircle car-free streets with architecture reflecting Portuguese, Dutch and British rule.

We spent the night (and wished we had 2 nights actually) in Galle and more precisely inside the Fort of Galle.

The Galle Fort is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Our hotel, the Fort Printers was originally a school, became a printing house and is now a boutique hotel.

Stopped for lunch at Udawatuna Beach.

It was raining but would be a lovely spot south of Galle for some relaxing time by the beach.

One image in my head I had of Sri Lanka was the Stilt Fishermen, made famous by the pictures of them taken by Steve McCurry in 1995

It’s often described as a traditional fishing method of Sri Lanka but it came into being just after World War II. It was apparently widely used all along the coast until the tsunami in 2004.
Nowadays it’s mostly a tourist attraction. The fishermen have found out that they make a better living posting for the cameras than by fishing

Well I got “my photo” 😉

Sri Lanka – Day 7.

We are leaving our little cabin near the National Park in Udawalawe and heading to Galle on the southwest coast.
