Next Day
Now we're talking - beach time! After high-tailing it out of the hills, we followed the downhill roads south to the tropical zone. Marco Polo considered Sri Lanka the finest island of its size in all the world, and he wasn't even talking about the beaches (sun tan lotion wasn't around in his day).
The coastal stretches of Sril Lanka's south offer palm-lined sandy expanses to the horizon.
The biggest stress out here: worries about a coconut falling on the head.
