Unforgettable Trip in Sri Lanka - Part II

So, I have arranged an airport pick-up to fetch us from the airport. Normally, I will try to request for the hotel to pick me up from the hotel if I expect that I will be having problem with the transportation from the airport to the hotel when I first arrived in a foreign country.

On the way to the hotel, I snapped a few photos from the car.

Tuk-tuk of Sri Lanka.

After checking into the hotel, I walked into my room and the first thing I normally do is check out the view of my room looking out from the window. I like the view!
The big building is the parlimentary house. The national day celebration of Sri Lanka was held on 4th-Feb on the road next to the coastal line.

We had our dinner in the hotel restaurant that night. The restaurant was serving seafood buffet.

We get to choose from a wide variety of seafood and then decide the style of the cooking, i.e. stir-fried, tandoori, grill, chilli-pepper etc.

Below are some of the seafood which we ordered.

Chilli-grilled squid, if I am not mistaken of the cooking style.

You can never miss out Sri Lankan crabs when you come to Sri Lanka. This is pepper crabs.

Later, we decided to try chilli butter squids (Again, if I am not mistaken of the cooking style!)

One of my favorite foods in Sri Lanka is the hoppers. These are plain hoppers. There is also egg hoppers which taste even better.

The action starts tomorrow!

ya. the food there is good for me. Sri Lankan food is not bad. A bit different from Indian food though. They eat rice most of the time while Indian eats thosai and chapati.
