Sunday walk down the beach in Colombo

So my camera screwed up on Saturday, no pictures 🙁

I formatted the memory card and put fresh batteries in and it seemed ok so I headed out for a walk along the beach after grabbing lunch in the hotel (Tandoori chicken sandwich).

Oops..forgot about writing this, got carried away clearing up my photos..taking up too much space 😀

Ok sorted them out to a reasonable degree, phew. Just dumped them into relevant folders though, still need to weed out the crappy ones..that’s a task for another day though as SOME PEOPLE[/url] keep bugging me every 5 minutes to update. (I have to work to do hmmkay)

So generally I sit in the hotel room…watching lousy movies on cable TV.

Hugging my ashtray..

Staring at my laptop, wondering why the hell THERE IS NO WIRELESS..

So after Saturday, I decided to take it out, just stroll out from the hotel and take a walk along the beach, it was a nice clear day, waited till it wasn’t *too* hot, around 3pm and headed out.

This is the hotel I’m staying at, literally across the street from the beach

It has it’s own roundabout with fountains..

On the other side of the roundabout, the old parliment building, which I’m not supposed to take pictures of..

The passtime for couples here…is sitting under and umbrella at the eh?

The beach front is pretty typical, sadly no bars or decent resturants, just small booths selling snacks and drinks..and lots of couples under umbrellas

And loads of guys selling pineapple, I had some, man the pineapple over here is fantastic, succulent, sweet and juicy…hmm sounds good.

This is where I have lunch at the weekends, the hotel cafe facing the beach.

I say at the weekend as in the week I don’t usually bother with lunch, I just load up on the awesome buffet breakfast..and starve till dinner, apparently supposed to be healthy someone told me 0_0

Just made a script to batch resize with PaintShop Pro, pretty neat seen as though I don’t have ACDSee here.

It’s Sinhalese new year this week too, so tommorow and Thursday are national holidays, there was some celebrations and such at the weekend but I didn’t make it there..doing real work is kind of tiring, not much mood for travelling after.

The hotel is having some kind of celebration during the holiday though so that might be worth a few snaps..

I’ll try and get out somewhere next weekend, perhaps Kandy, supposed to be a good place to visit.

Have to go and eat now..laters

    its a public holiday every time the moon is full. apparently. that’s like twice a month. imagine getting two public holidays every month. that’s like 24 extra days off. all cos this devoutly buddhist country decided they needed to pray on full moon day or something. ha!

    Thai Boxing Girl: Yeah, if you drink plenty of Pineapple juice during the 24 hours leading up to sex, then it works.
    Don’t eat any asparagus though. Apparently that makes it taste awful (not that I would know that one)

    Hehe, that’s what I always been doing 😛

    Hehe thanks, am not bad at photography, it doesn’t look that great actually, just captured it well, photography is just an expression of subjective view.

    Could make it look horrible or make it look nice depending on how I shot it, I just prefer to make things look good 🙂

    Prefer to be back there, Hotel is in the financial district so there is not much to do except walk down the beach now and then..

    Get’s a bit old after the 3rd time 😛

    No decent local resturants nearby, and the clubs/bars are spread out all over the place, so it’s not that enticing to go out.

    Nice pics. Just wondering what notebook you are using there?

  18. ShaolinTiger April 17, 2005 at 10:44 pm #

    Acer Travelmate 290 series, pretty much the cheapest in the range but it’s good apart from the keyboard is a bit squishy.
