Swimming while we waited for our food
The green hotel is on the side of the main road from Galle to Matara, about 6 miles out of Galle. You'll see its name written in huge letters, but it isn't really a part of any town. The name "hotel" in Sri Lankan English really means restaurant and, as such, they place didn't have any rooms or lodging. There is a dining room inside but we ate outside under the palm trees, with the sound of the surf from the Koggala beach nearby. There was no one on the beach and we went swimming while we waited for our food. We ordered a chicken fried rice, which cost one euro per person, which is generally more than they charge local people but you get a pretty fancy plate.
