Day 29 - Colombo

This was our day two with shopping. We woke up at Hotel Sunshinel, took the bus to a store called Paradise Road were we found some really nice things for our home. One ganesh statue that cost 9000rs/442SEK, it was really nice! We wanted to bring it home, but... its to big.
Though the price where really good, at home it would cost us almost 2000SEK. We didn't buy anything at Paradise Road, because the things where to big or to heavy, and some of the things we can buy at home.
Then we walked on the same road as PR and found the store Cotton, were they have clothing for ladys, men and kids. Prices are good and there are alot to look at. After some shopping in Cotton we went to have a Ice Coffe, that Ice Coffe was so good! Ice Coffe cost 40rs/2SEK each. When we were done with our coffe we walked to a place called ODEL.
There they had beautiful clothings for women and men, the prices was really good there. Ioannis bought some awesome clothes. We also found some souvenirs there, that was not that expensive as in other stores. Inside ODEL they also had things for your home, candy (in between the clothes), a café, accesories, a jeweler, clothes for kids and a spa. When we were done with the shopping there we went back with the bus to our hotel. Left our things there and headed for Majestic City (the shopping mall), were we grabbed something to eat and look'd at some clothings and other things again. 

In the evening we went home, watched TV and relaxed in the bed. We couldn't sleep, because we knew that the following day our taxi leaves.

Day 27 - Hikkaduwa, Colombo

Today we had our alarm on half past eight. So we could have a early breakfast, our last one in Hikkaduwa. Had some breakfast, packed our bags, chatted with the family at Laly's Homestay, the mother in the house braided Emelies hair and after some photos together we said goodbye. We wanted to take the train to Colombo from Hikkaduwa, that costs about 230Rs/12SEK. But we got the info that small a/c buses from Hikkaduwa to Colombo costs about 270Rs/14SEK. So we thought that we could have that luxurys this day.
The bus took almost 4 hours. When we came to Colombo we jumped of in Bambalapitya and walked by the Galle Road to Shrubbery Garden rd. On that road there was three places to stay, two hotels and one guesthouse. We asked at the places how much they toke for two nights, looked at the rooms. The greenlands hotel was not good for 2500Rs/124SEK and the guesthouse was full. So we had to take Hotel Sunshine, that one was very good. For 5000Rs/278SEK a night we got hot water, television, a/c, roof fan and comfy beds, that was the first time on this trip that we had all of that luxury.
When we got the key to the room we did rest for a bit, then took a hot shower and later we did go for a food hunt. We where so hungry so we went down to the mall Majestic City and had a meal. In the basement of MC they had all kinds of resturants. 
How to find Laly's homestay (1000Rs/50SEK night) in Hikkaduwa:
I think it will be possible to find from the road soon, but at the moment there is no sign. If you jump of the bus in Thiranagama and walk on the beach towards Hikkaduwa town you will se a place were they sell coconuts on the beach as you can se in the picture bellow. This is where the beach is wide, not small.. like where the resturants are. 
If you walk up there and straight up in the "jungle" on a small road you will come to the homestay. If some one on the beach asks you where you are going dont tell them, if you meet the wrong person that person will say to the owners of the place that they should ern some %-Rs because they got guests because of that person.
