We have always been very lucky on our trips in regard to weather but this time, it just isn’t looking good. Sri Lanka has been hit by days of heavy rain with landslides and 80,000 residents evacuated, so when we complain about the rain, we really have nothing to worry about…

And of course, life goes on – bananas need to be sold, cricket needs to be played and of course, elephants need to be washed!

We wandered the sometimes chaotic and always fascinating streets of Colombo for a couple of days, too a few photos and ate some fantastic spicy food.
