Our big trip today was to walk in to Colombo and find a government pharmacy to buy some cough medicine and throat tablets…wow…we really know how to live.

Really hot today… 87f / 31c at eleven this morning, luckily the humidity was only 60%.

Colombo is the commercial capital and largest city of Sri Lanka with a population of five million and is located on the west coast of the island. Colombo is a busy and vibrant place with a mixture of modern and colonial buildings and lots of ruins!! The port ranks amongst the top thirty five busiest ports in the world.
There was a sail-away party at 17:45 but unfortunately due to one of the tours being very late back the party was over before we finally sailed away. Bet Captain Hamish was not a happy bunny….

Clocks forward half an hour tonight now six hours in front of UK time.
