Next stop - "Back of Beyond - Kahandamodara". Arriving here, we settled in for our next couple of days. During this time, we took a boat ride around Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary (sure are a lot of birds in this country), watch fishermen bring in their early morning catch, went for a bike ride along the country roads, visited Ussangoda National Park, happened upon a "Full Moon" Parade (part of a Buddhist full moon celebration) and went late night turtle watching (seeing a giant sea turtle lay her eggs).

We continue to enjoy the food and culture of this beautiful country.

It is believed that a meteorite landed on this site making the soil bright red. Nothing grows in this coastal area.
