Mango man and a trip to Kalapitiya
Hello there, hope you’ve been having a good week, during the Christmas holidays we had lots of visits from the Mango man.
He was round again today with oranges, so he is now my Orange man! Local sweet big juicy oranges, not that cheap but better than buying ones which have come all the way from Australia!
One of the weekends over Christmas, after a delicious Mango & Coconut smoothie for breakfast, we went up to Kalpitiya, hoping to see the dolphins, unfortunately the weather was against us, the sea too rough and we weren’t able to go out. As we say in Sri Lanka, what to do?
On the way up to Kalpitiya, just before Chilaw you will see a beautiful Hindu Temple called Munneswaram temple.
We carried on and eventually got to Kalpitiya, we were staying at Ruuk Village which is a lovely very peaceful place to stay. Basic cabanas but well made and a good price, some places in Kalpitiya are very pricey so it’s good to find somewhere which is much more reasonable.
It reminded me of the beautiful Klimt Forest paintings
Unless you like Kite Surfing there isn’t much to do at Ruuk Village but I don’t mind, they provide free tea and coffee so I sat back with my knitting, happy and relaxed.
A breathtaking display, it reminded me of when I received a fountain pen from my Step-Aunt, maybe I was 12 or 14? I used to colour in paper with a sunset from Blue to purple to pink just like this picture and then draw trees on with the black ink from my lovely new pen, they may even have been palm trees but I’m not so sure.
Did you spend the weekend with me in Anuradhapura?
Take care, have a lovely week and see you next time.
