    Quick Stop Colombo, Sri Lanka

    December 13, 2019 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Still a bit lethargic with our colds we ventured ashore for a couple hours and took a Tuk Tuk with local driver USD12 for up to 2 hrs. He took us to a "gem museum" aka jewellery store, then a nice lake in the city where we could see a temple in the distance and get an idea of the city felt like. It's much cleaner and better organized than any of the cities we saw in India. No obvious smog. We also visited a tea factory which turned out to be a tea shop. Couldn't miss the famous Ceylon tea thing could we now? We tried some teas and actually bought a few, too. Will look forward to sharing with visitors at home! It was a very hot and muggy day so were glad to get back to comfort of our ship.Read more
