    Sad but unavoidable planxty Date Added: Mar 20, 2015

    I was sitting on the beach at Hikkaduwa one day watching a reasonably calm sea and my mind turned to the appalling tsunami of 2004 which claimed so many lives here on the Southern Coast.

    I know it is most terribly sad but you cannot avoid seeing constant reminders here in the form of still ruined buildings, roadside cemeteries and memorials everywhere.

    I was in a contemplative mood that day and thought I would commit some of my (unscripted) thoughts to the flashcard.

    Tuk tuk ride in Hikkaduwa (Part 4) SWFC_Fan Date Added: Mar 31, 2014

    This short video was taken during our visit to Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka in March 2014.

    We hired a tuk tuk and driver for a day at a cost of 5,000 Rupees (£25) in order to see various sights in the area.

    Travelling in a tuk tuk is great fun - even if it involves the occasional scary moment as the drivers insist on weaving between traffic and overtaking on the wrong side of the road!

    Beach at Hikkaduwa SWFC_Fan Date Added: Mar 29, 2014

    This short video was taken during our visit to Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka in March 2014.

    It shows a small section of Hikkaduwa's long sandy beach. This stretch of beach is located just north of the Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa Hotel.

    The beach immediately south of here is popular with sea turtles.

    The beaches a short walk north of here are popular snorkeling spots.

    Sea turtles at Hikkaduwa (Part 2) SWFC_Fan Date Added: Mar 29, 2014

    A number of large sea turtles could usually be found in the shallow waters of the beach in front of the Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa Hotel.

    Each morning, crowds of people would gather to feed seaweed to the turtles. Enterprising locals would get up early, bag the seaweed up and sell it to tourists.
