After that surf retreat I had planned another week at the South Coast in Mirissa. One week for beach time, relaxing, whale watching etc.
Well, it becamemore a week of eating, eating, and wondering how much rain can fall from the sky.
Living in Andalusia I was definitely not used to this, and actually didn't expect this. I thought monsoon season was over, but for one week straight it poured down heavily, including some tropical storm. The streets were flooded,the skies were grey, everything got wet and even more humid. Clothes start to smell, my backpack got covered in mold - hooray to living in the tropics!
Tamzin and I did the best you could do in such weather - eat. There are a few places in Mirissa doing smoothie bowls so we tried them all. Cocktails at night at the beach bars (when the weather allowed. And also when not).
Seriously, it was a shame. But what to do.
One day when it was more or less dry, I took the bus to Galle, the next bigger town. But that was kinda boring, too.
Lets hope for better weather next week, I am going first to Colombo to extend my visa, then take the train toKandy (together with a friend who is passing by), and then we will see.
