April 10th 

We drove from Galle to Colombo Airport a 3 or 4 hour drive on the new freeway. We passed several cinnamon plantations mostly small holdings. We also saw rubber plantations and newly planted oil palms.

Leaving Colombo was a bit of a fiasco as I left my crutches in the van, but as usual in Sri Lanka a stranger (who had lived in Melbourne for a number of years) came to the rescue and phoned the .driver who returned to the airport. Everybody has been so helpful and kind but it meant I had no time for airport shopping.

The flight to Perth was uneventful and Malindo Air business class certainly had roomy seats but passengers were unlikely to get drunk!

We are having idyllic weather in Perth and our friends and relatives have been driving us around our old haunts which has been great.

So I will finish off with a few photos of Perth and go into hibernation again.

  1. George looks like he could spin an entertaining yarn or two. I love Kings Park for the elevation and the views. You captured that feel in two pictures.
    Welcome back to Oz.

  2. Welcome back to Australia. Your trip seems to have flown by!

  3. Magnificent sunset. Thank you for taking me along with you to Sri Lanka, welcome home to Australia.
