Trincomalee, Sri Lanka

 

Today was the first of three Sri Lanka ports, and a beach seemed like the right choice. After all of the commotion and dirt of Chennai, we were ready for peace and quiet.
 
For those of you not involved in the poker community, it was a terrible week for freedom. The Feds closed the three largest poker sites, causing literally millions of Americans not to be able to enjoy their hobby. They also froze all money which belongs to thousands of people who make their living playing poker. It is amazing what one or two zealots can do even in America.


 
Anyway, we needed some relaxation.
 
The day was spent at Chaaya Blu Hotel with 40 other folks from the ship. The beach is so big that no one felt crowded.
 
Allyn and I even went down the road to the local spa for a nice massage.
