So what with all these holidays the kids were home Wednesday and Thursday and then the weekend! Argh! Too much family time! So I begged, nay, beseeched G to come down to Hikkaduwa with me for the day. I don't think he was all that keen at first but once you hit the open road with a few good tunes, things change. I read somewhere that it is essential for humans to get out of the urban jungle and see green in all it's shades every once in awhile, gives our primate brain a woody.

|I am definitely staying here next time...would that look hilarious on your next VISA bill?|
To compound this good fortune, Galle is just down the road and we were "in need" of a sweet. So we arrived and parked. I went into Souk 58 and was a bit bummed in that there was another banana shirt. How can that be? What if I run into it at a one of my fancy outings to Food City or Arpico? Fashion Faux Pas or what?! So I consoled myself with a lovely piece of cake while G had a fruit salad. I, then coerced him into going to "Dairy King" for home-made ginger ice cream. It's amazing. There are big chunks of hot ginger at the bottom..yum! Of course eating this looking out over the Indian ocean with your sweetheart is also pretty amazing.

So I returned, refreshed and ready for the next little while. It's going to be a bit of a whirlwind as we get ready to come home. I'm also going to try to do the Galle Market on June 1. Busy, busy, busy!
