The Complete Deal

sunny 33 °C

Our last days ar Barberyn. The last yoga class this morning. I share hugs with Anoja and we share stories of our connections to shivananda yoga. How she was a brilliant actress and when her life unravelled found yoga. I share my meeting with Swami Vishnudevananda back in the 1970's as my first yoga teacher and how he would bark out postures in Sanskrit and come around and lovingly kick me into the poses. We have our last massages and herbal packs and tea bathes. We have a final consultation with the Ayurvedic Doctor and are given oils and concoctions to use when we get home. We answer a bunch of questions and she determines our constitutions. I am a pitha kapha dominant. Mani is a vatha kapha dominant. We are given lists of what foods are good for us and what are not so good. I am relieved to find that most foods I like are encouraged. I am somewhat dismayed that a few foods do not make the list - chocolate and alcohol among them. Shucks. We have lunch , check out and I say goodbye to my masseurs and staff and guests we have met.


They resort has graciously agreed as part of our package with them to drive us an hour and a quarter south to our next destination in the Unawatuna area and our meeting up with Don and Kathy. I am impressed by their generosity. They respond saying they would have taken us back to the airport and this is no further in driving time for their driver, so we head south in plush air conditioned luxury.

By 3 we arrive at Dallawalla Beach and find our new accomodation. Not quite the same standard we have grown accustomed to, but the Summer Valley Boutique Inn is on a quiet road just minutes away from the beach on the south east tip of Sri Lanka and has convenient internet connection. We meet up with brother Don and Kathy, spend the later part of the afternoon getting caught up on our travels to date, then head out for dinner joining the tourist circuit at a swinging restaurant with a young surfer energy, and return after dark to get caught up on our travel blog.
