I was super excited to visit the Museum of Tsunami in Hikkaduwa. It is sistuated in a small house, damaged by tsunami in 2004. You can see how water changed things and also drastically changed lifes of people. The most touching are the pictures drawn by children. This is how they see and understand tsunami. If you go to Hikkaduwa, I definitely recommend visiting this museum as it helps you appreciate your life and people around you.

There is also a mass grave of train victims and a beautiful statue of Buddha, gift of Japanese government.

I haven’t posted anything for almost a month. The reason for that, as you can see by the name, was my lovely vacation in Sri Lanka. Weirdly, the Internet there is horrible, so I barely could check my email.
I first flew to Dubai, then to Colombo, and then travelled to Hikkaduwa. Indian Ocean was lovely – warm and nice waves for surfing, or if you don’t like waves, there’s a nice lagoon with very calm water.
I enjoyed seafood there a lot! If you go to Hikkaduwa, you gotta try garlic prawns at Joint in the South Wind restaurant, also they have yummi kalamari and seafood fried rice. Loved shark steak at Top Secret. And, obviously, fruit and juices in Sri Lanka are amazing!!!!!! Try red bananas and soursops. Sooooo good!!!!!!
