The Dutch Canal

Made by the Dutch - from Colombo to Puttalam. It is passing Negombo - and at a textilshop near this chanal - we agreed for a trip later this day.

Other people in our group had taken this trip the day before, and told it was very nice. So now we are ready...

In "slow motion" we passed houses, people, trees, birds, bridges - and even a varan in the water. Our guide also found a varan, resting in a tree. From the canal - we arrived the river - a short trip to the end of the river, meeting the waves from the ocean - and then up the river..

One and an half hour - really relaxing time! If you are in Negombo - try it!

To the left, our trip... :-)

 

 

Our thanks to all!
