This day was by far the best day of my trip.
This day,as per the itinerary was free,so we decided to head back to Galle since we loved it so much. By this time,my friends and I had run out of cash and we desperately needed to exchange our Indian money. We noticed a very pretty Bungalow in a lane that had a sign put up. K The sight was unbelievable! A man sitting on a sofa ,reading the newspaper stood up when we walked in and asked us whether we had come to exchange cash,and walks to his study table opens his drawer,takes our money and gives us Srilankan currency! After getting over the shock that a money exchange that was this unprofessional took place,we noticed a few bicycles parked outside. In the spur of the moment I asked him whether we could rent them,and after some negotiating we got them for a decent price. So it was the 3 of us cycling away to glory, stopping by shops in the streets of Galle. Never had I ridden a cycle on a public street before so the experience was quite exhilarating!
Enroute back to Colombo our senior saw a sign saying snorkeling outside a shack. My impression of snorkeling was something that is done near the shore,which is why I started hyperventilating when we were in a boat in the middle of the sea and no sign of land. And suddenly one of the guides yell,ready to jump! My heartbeat had quickened and I couldn't believe I was actually doing this! I shut my eyes and jumped and there it was,I could see tiny fish swimming below and even saw the blue coloured" Dory fish"! It was magical. It made me feel so lost in this world,the waves rocking me back and forth with the sky above me and the fish beneath me.
