Actual Colonial Splendor

Nilan and I went out to dinner last night with some friends, first we went to the Dutch Hospital which was a... Dutch hospital about 300 years ago, and is now a series of restaurants and shops. After dinner we went to the Tintagel Hotel for dessert (coconut ice cream, chocolate sauce). The Tintagel used to be the home of the former president of Sri Lanka, S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike, he was assassinated on the front porch by a Buddhist monk in 1959; now it's a small, luxury, boutique hotel.
