We spent quite a bit of time in a semi-rural area near Galle. The 10 of us had hired a house, complete with an infinity pool overlooking rice paddies, a Danish couple who were the hosts and a cook, housekeeper, gardener, maintenance man and security guard! The house overlooked a paddy field and we were lucky to see the rice being harvested. In the mornings and the evenings the purple faced silver monkeys passed through the garden. Very special! We travelled into Galle a few days via tuktuk and travelled up the coast another day. Everywhere there were reminders of the 2004 tsunami - ruined houses, memorials and monuments.
