Back to the game, we chatted to a local who told us about his team – Mahinda, who just happen to wear Beez Neez colours. Thrilled to see black and yellow flags and even more pleased when we got back to our digs to find out that they had been victorious. Yay.

At each end of the patio was a fun map, we checked the local one to make sure we had seen everything.

Off again, we stopped to watch a very serious game of draughts between two tuktuk drivers.
