rain 25 °C

Day 24: 27.12.2009

Two days before returning back home we were still 140km from airport. It was enough time to split the way in 2 stages, but we didnt want to risk. Also we had to find boxes for bicycles to be able to transport them back home and we knew that this will not be easy.
First we cycled 55km very fast because we wanted to catch the train to Colombo. We had luck and camed even early, because train was as ussual late. This train was really full compared to the one we tested in north. There was at least 20 peoples in each "cabin" sitting one on other.We had again luck, because we were staying with our bikes in lagguage department. This department was also full of things and people, but compared to rest of the train very spaceful. After arriving to Colombo main railway station we had to cycle in rain another 30km and in the evening just before dark we arrived to Negombo our final destination. I have returned the key we had forgott to return after leaving guesthouse Ocean view 23 days ago. They were shocked, but thankfull.
We cycled 85km and were on bikes 5 hours.
