We took the train to Hikkaduwa where we planned to stay a few nights, but ended up staying for one night and leaving first thing the next morning. We ordered an avocado roti at a little place when we arrived. When it came, it had cheese in it. We sent it back and the cheese was replaced with hair.
As a holiday destination, Hikkaduwa is pretty perfect for anyone wanting to surf, drink, party with other tourists and eat fairly overpriced food. Everything is in one place. Hikkaduwa beach is lined with pretty bars and restaurants which blast out western music. Since we have little interest in any of what was on offer, we scooped up Maia and set off for Tangalle.
