4th January 2015 – Weligama, Sri Lanka
The surf wasn’t too inviting, and the waves faded from the eye. But the company of a well-written book, kept me going. Reading seems to be the mood of the day, as I find out. Not just in the hostel, even the public toilets were showing.
I think today was my first sober day in Sri Lanka.
I don’t think I have had any day so far without a drink here in this idyllic country. It has been gorgeous, but it has also been tiring. Weligama seemed to be the antidote.
The whole town sleeps by 10 PM, so I had no choice but to get to sleep by 9, after spending most of my day reading. If it is of any interest, I am struggling with ‘The curious incident of the dog in the night-time’ by Mark Haddon.
