18th June 2015 – Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka
Fatigue is like a surf break on the beach,
You wait for it for hours, in the scorching sun.
And when it finally hits you in all its glory,
What follows is a whole night of sleep, and a day of fun.
After the lengthy journey yesterday, fatigue had hit us like a train wreck. And I slept almost till noon today.
At noon, me and Nicci stepped out of our resort to check out the local beach. Arugam bay is a popular surfing destination, and one of the reasons I had chosen to come here was to brush up on my horrible surfing skills, which were intact from the last time I tried it, back in Philippines.
As you would imagine, it never happened. We found a chill spot on the beach, under the shade, started reading a book (‘The cellist of Sarajevo’ – highly recommended!). And before I knew it, it was evening. After a shower, we stepped out to take pictues of the sunset against the lake.
I had to chase a crow to run into the sunset reflection. Was worth it, I think.
