Located on the southwestern coast of the country, Galle is a small old fort town popular with tourists. It has many boutique shops selling local handicrafts (including many mass-produced items staged as handcrafted), countless restaurants and even more jewelry stores. It’s a quaint little area that is easy to explore and walk around. The heat, on the other hand, was the downside that we were not prepared for. We did not have to be active to be struggling with it and our respective drenched state. The fact that there were power cuts several times a day which deprived us of the luxury of fans and AC did not help. Trying not to let the weather get the better of us, we still managed to explore the fort and its surroundings, including the peace pagoda. After having stayed for three days, we were looking forward to some more moderate temperatures and rain in the central and hilly parts of the country.
