From the minute we arrived Sanjaya and his family were the epitome of the famous warm Sri Lankan hospitality. We arrived in the evening after catching a train from Kandy to Colombo with our twin four year olds who were tired and agitated! We were greeted with a delicious Sri Lankan dinner of a generous serving of egg hoppers, hoppers, chicken curry and condiments. The house itself is a beautiful example of tropical modernism, being the first building designed by a student of the renowned Geoffrey Bawa called C.Anjalendran. The bedroom was very comfortable with crisp sheets, cool (a/c and fan) and clean, as was the bathroom and the hot shower. They had even put up a special mosquito net tent for our twin four year olds to sleep in which they were delighted about. They also provided Sri Lankan children's books in English which thrilled the girls. Breakfast was also a treat of fresh fruit, more tasty curry, milk rice, eggs and toast for our girls and the ubiquitous pot of tea. The family went out of their way to make us happy such as providing some warm milk and sugar for our fussy girls. Sanjaya and Bhagya's daughter Amandi was so gentle and patient with our girls playing them Frozen songs on the piano, drawing them pictures of Elsa and Anna and generally entertaining them! Our hosts directed us to the local swimming pool which was only a few minutes walk from the house and the perfect outing for the children. We were also privileged to meet the neighbours who are batik artisans and demonstrated the painstaking process for us. It was a very relaxing atmosphere and Sanjaya and Bhagya were a fountain of information with all our questions about Sri Lanka. We cannot speak highly enough of Sanjaya and his family and were sad to say goodbye.
