The island was occupied by the British until the 1940s, so much of the architecture and design elements reflect a British Colonial look which I love! The first hotel I stayed at was the Galle Face Hotel. Here are the large wooden carved doors that are original to the building! My first day there I spent wondering about this historic hotel as I tried to get acclimated to my new time zone. My wondering led me to the hotel's interesting royal museum which I will tell you about in my next blog!
Any afternoon tea that includes chocolate mousse is a hit for me! How about you?
Since I started my blog with the lovely sunrise, I thought I would end it with the stunning sunset that concluded my first day in this new land full of adventures that awaited me!
Come with me as I take you to Sri Lanka. I will show you some wonderful tea plantations, interesting foods, and beautiful scenery!
Happy Sipping Ceylon Tea, Lisa
Side Note: Next week, I will be speaking in Sonoma wine country for a private event and then off to Las Vegas for the World Tea Expo. I would love to meet up with you in Vegas if you are attending this trade-only event.
