When we arrived, it was close to the evening, plus the preparations for rain, so the dark clouds hitting the roof just showed the mystery of the temple
I came here mainly for the long-standing linden tree. We had to take a short walk from a special passage to get close to the linden tree. When we arrived, we still saw a large number of students looking up under the tree, and other people offered white flowers , Some have already kneeled down on the ground with their hands folded and murmured their heads, and a Buddha statue was enshrined next to the bodhi tree.
After getting up early in the morning and washing up, I walked around this big house by myself. I went to the rooftop on the third floor and used the solar water heater. Anuradhapura is very hot.

After leaving Mirissa, we drove to the next destination, Galle, and walked for about 20 minutes. A friend found that the sunglasses were pulled at the bed and breakfast, so I turned around and took it back. We just saw a beautiful beach and sea water. There are colorful boats moored, so we plan to wait here.
In the beach of Koggala, there are some crumbling poles on the sea. When the tide level is high, these poles look like a crane standing only in the sea. Every local fisherman has a rod of his own, these rods are firmly inserted on the seabed near the coast, and the fishermen sit on the rod and fish. Stilt fisherman is also the most famous business card in Sri Lanka, but almost no traditional fisherman, and some are professionally modeled "model fishermen."
Before going to the bed and breakfast, our driver helped us find a small fishing market by the sea and bought the seafood ingredients we needed at night. There were few choices, but we still found the cuttlefish we like, but the price is not private and not cheap.
The boiled prawns have a shrimp removal line in advance, so you can just eat them and squeeze a few drops of lemon juice to enhance the umami taste.
We can't call the name of this crab species, but it is steamed out, the entrance is sweet, and the meat is Q-shaped. It is definitely the unique taste and taste of deep-sea crabs.
Our driver (the local Sinhalese in Lanka) loved the pineapple fried chicken. When we ate, he asked him to choose a dish he thought was the best. He chose this dish, which proved that the dish tasted absolutely It's nothing to say, the people of Lanka who eat curry can also praise that the taste is really strong enough to attract their taste buds.
Steaming: Crabs, Prawns, Bass Fried: Convolvulus, Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes, Banana Flowers (Specially Made by Butler) Pickling: Sour Radish (Cut Strips, Salt Claws, Water, Add Red Vinegar, Put in Refrigerator) Juicing: Avocado Milkshake
The squid here doesn't seem to be cheap, but we still bought two to taste, choose onion and tomato to stir fry, the imported Q bomb is tough, and it is another successful dish.
Although it took almost two hours to eat this sumptuous dinner, absolutely every dish is perfect, especially satisfying my Chinese stomach. What's even happier is that the butler helped us wash the dishes after the meal.

After the Dutch colonists rebuilt and expanded it on the basis of the original city defense. Since the 18th century, Galle has already shown its prototype as a barrier. Galle used the ancient old city wall as an iconic symbol of the local landscape to witness the changes in the colonial period.

At the same time, it is also the guardian of the ancient city. It protected the entire ancient city during the tsunami, so that all the buildings of the ancient city were not damaged by the tsunami, and it allows us to continue to visit this intact world cultural heritage today.
I really like this design that integrates with nature. It is very wonderful to arrange natural light so transparently. The living room is arranged in the entrance space, with the rattan sofa and coffee table, plus the finishing trunk, the essence is It's amazing, I love this decoration style, and in order to make better use of the power of nature without destroying nature, the ceiling fan is used here to cool down instead of air conditioning.

Restaurant: Crepe-ology Rooftop Restaurant Address: 53 Leyn Baan Street, Galle Fort (near Historical Mansion Museum)
The restaurant converted from a colonial building is elegantly furnished and cozy, with a comfortable environment and a large terrace on the roof overlooking the old city of Galle. The disadvantage is that the waiter is busy when the meal arrives, but he needs to wait for a long time when he arrives, and may also encounter the impatient treatment of the waiter.
There are a variety of delicious foods, especially a variety of Crepe to choose from, the price is reasonable, the most important thing is also a Chinese menu, recommend garlic crepes (Pesto Chichken Crepe), fish crepes (Fish Crepe) and mint lime ginger juice (Mint-Lime-Ginger Cooler), avocado smoothie.
The central area of the ancient city of Galle is not large, but the small streets and alleys extend in all directions. The buildings on the street retain the colonial color, as if they are in a European town. Rest.
Going to the entrance of the old city and seeing a couple more men and women on the street, how could it be possible to let this scene pass?
A group of gorgeous ladies are preparing for the New Year's blessing ceremony.
Not too far away, I saw several luxuriously dressed ladies holding flower baskets in a high-end private club. They were preparing for the New Year ’s celebrations, but they were only small-scale private gatherings. Can only rush to the small green square to the civilian New Year's offer yesterday, the fact proves the hospitality and kindness of the local people. [happy]

In Sri Lanka, it seems that almost memorable sunsets can be seen by the sea. The driver took us to turn around briefly in Colombo, and finally we chose to come to the green area of Galle Face to watch the sunset in the Indian Ocean. There is a roadside stall here when hungry, and ice cream when I am thirsty, I do n’t do anything here

We chose to live in the CHINATOWN between the three and four districts, and chose a bed and breakfast near the seaside train station, so I did n’t take enough sea trains yesterday. I went out early this morning and went to the nearest KOLLUPITIYA station to wait for the sea train and train to MOUNT LIVINIA Tickets are only sold ten minutes before driving, and the train time of the day will be written on the blackboard next to the ticket window. Although I asked the staff, for the sake of insurance, I specially asked the photo of this beautiful woman. The shabby ticket office is small, but very clean. The platform of the seaside train station is also very simple, some just set up a wall, and the platform is not fenced. As long as you can see the road, you can go straight up. The train, the sea, the fishing rod, the fisherman, and the The feeling of photos is really wonderful.
In two days, we took the most elite MOUNT LIVINIA-COLOMBO FORT about half an hour of sea train experience and walked out of the plot fantasy of the sea train of "Thousand and Thousand Seeks", although the railway really left the sea It's very close, but the reality is still reality. The railroad tracks can't be soaked in the sea water, but it is so close to the seaside, and it can make people easily walk on the railroad tracks to see the Indian Ocean.
The best train experience in Sri Lanka
From Galle Galle to Colombo Fort, the fastest journey is two and a half hours, and the slowest is four hours. This section has the world-famous sea train scenic line. We chose the most elite MOUNT LIVINIA-COLOMBO FORT, about half an hour's journey by sea train experience. I walked back to reality from the plot fantasy of the "Thousand and Thousand Seeking" sea trains. Although the railway is really close to the seaside, the reality is that the railroad tracks cannot be soaked in the sea water, but it is so close to the seaside and can make people It's really a very special experience to walk across the rails to the nearest shore to see the sea of the Indian Ocean, but we still have the satisfaction of choosing the sea train to see the scenery.

The trains in Sri Lanka are completely open. Many people or people who are afraid of heat will choose to hang on the door. This scene is the famous hanging train.
After crossing a bridge, you arrive at Fish Market.
We arrived in Negombo in the afternoon, and Negombo Lagoon was full of fishing boats in the lagoon of Negombo Lagoon
We arrived in Negombo at more than two o'clock in the afternoon. We have long missed the morning market transaction of the most characteristic fishermen returning from fishing. It is said that the scene is very spectacular. But let the driver drive us to the Negombo Fish Market next to Negombo Lagoon. After crossing a bridge, we saw a harbor full of fishing boats. Soon we arrived at the fishing market. Lobsters, crabs and prawns from the Salt Lake Very famous. It is a pity that the fishing market in the noonday sun has been empty, all that remains are fishermen who kill fish and bask on the beach, and a large group of crows and seabirds fly around. The unpleasant smell makes people unable to stay for a long time. . After the morning market time, this is a fish drying farm, and around five o'clock in the afternoon, I heard that there is still a return scene that can be filmed.
Half an hour from the airport, this is the biggest happy paradise for locals. The car can be driven directly to the beach, many of them are sent by the family, especially many children, some parents and children, and some friends, playing with water on the shore, Some go to sea by speedboat, and others play sailing. The most memorable thing is that there is a beautiful sunset here, and it is not too late to go to the airport after watching the sunset.
The last attraction of Sri Lanka last day is Negombo Beach. After a seafood dinner, the driver took us to Negombo Beach, which is about half an hour drive from the airport. Driving the car directly to the beach, the local tyrant also drove the four-wheel drive off-road directly into the water [laughing]. From time to time, three or two sailboats floated on the sea. Even if the waves here were high, many children still had fun. In order to catch the plane, we bid farewell to the beautiful sunset in the Indian Ocean and reluctantly got on the bus to the airport. Although there were minor accidents on the way to the airport, our trip to Lanka was finally completed. Period.
A local restaurant specializing in seafood in Negombo. It is especially recommended for pre-dinner prawn salad and main dish seafood platter. The owner is a chef with a thirty-year-old chef who takes good care of every guest. 7 of us consumed 11,000 rupees.
Because Negombo is relatively close to the international airport, many friends will choose to transfer here. We choose to eat the last supper here before going to the airport. Of course, we choose a delicious seafood dinner. The lobster that was not eaten last night is also the only choice. TripAdvisor recommends this second Scandic restaurant, try to prove that this is a cost-effective restaurant, second-class prices can enjoy first-class service, strongly recommend prawn salad and seafood platter before ordering!
