Mirissa to Tissa...

A day on the bus

We left Mirissa this morning and caught a local bus to Tissa,where we will be going on safari tomorrow. We had to change buses at Matara station,so saw this as an opportunity to try our first traditional Sri Lankan breakfast. We had a vegetable and egg rotti and full fat coke each...AMAZING!!!!!! It's a stuffed pancake with a spicy egg or veg filling that's sold at street vendors. We will be having them again I'm sure.

Just as we boarded our second bus of the day Jason gave me a panic attack. "I've lost my wallet,stop the bus". He'd turned grey as it had all of our money in. We quickly jumped off the bus with all of our bags,only to find that he had zipped it away in another compartment. It took a good 10 minutes for Jason to stop sweating with panic. (At least it wasn't my error).

We've just got to our hotel, Lake Edge Holiday Inn. It seems nice so far. There was a wedding finishing when we arrived. If only Jason hadn't made us get off that first bus as there was apparently an offering of free food from the wedding buffet. You all know I like my food. Gutted.

We're just gonna spend the evening chilling tonight around the hotel. There's a lake side view and hammocks where we can catch up on The Wire series and relax for the evening.

We've got a 5.00am start tomorrow for safari with a hope of seeing leopards...keep your fingers crossed.

Lots of love xxx
