If tea has made Sri Lanka world famous then so has the sun-kissed golden coastline that runs the length of this pearl of an island. The 2nd day on tour was spent discovering the flavours of Southern Sri Lanka. From curd, which is a staple in any home down South and is served by the pot to the house-guests generous amounts of treacle, to juicy papaya, fresh from the tree and untouched by any chemical, this part of the island lid up to the legendary hospitality Sri Lankans are known for. And, of course, there were an adventurous few who could not resist the lure of the breaking waves of the dimpling Indian Ocean.
