Negombo again

Filed under: privat — Tags: , — mat @ 8:47 am

I tried to make a reservation in advance for Jetwing Seashells for the last night, was a hard ones but at least it worked. At the Ayubowan we had few hours left before taking the train. The train. Some of the guys recommended because in his mind should be not so crowded as the bus. New year is coming and it’s weekend too so a lot of people will go to Colombo for shopping or visting families. The train was crowded. Even we took the right one, which means we took an express train. We stood the whole ride. Terrible. Than we decided we don’t want to wait for the bus to Negombo and had a look for the right bus. We did it after nearly one hour. First we entered a A/C bus, but as usual, no space for us and the lagguage. So we jumped out and entered a local bus. It was slower but cheaper and comfortable. At least it took us 5 hours ride for approximately 100 km. That’s Sri Lanka too. We got a room and thee surrprise for us was the overtime rate for a late checkout. 30 $. First a thought the guy at the desk was kidding me but he was serious. After a short negotiation we agreed for 20 $. More than enough. But we knew that we’ll have a comfortable stay here until our flight is scheduled. And may be I’ll post our summary for Sri Lanka also.
as you may travel with lagguage ...
