Beat your jetlag

The best way to beat your jetlag, is to keep moving. Travel some more.
We departed our island Texel by boat, then to the airport by car, we flew to London and from there to Colombo. By the time we left the airport in the capital of Sri Lanka, we travelled for 21 hours already. But it was only a little past noon, so we took a bus to the centre of Colombo, at a market we switched into a tuktuk - yes, all five of us, plus two large backpacks, a guitar and several small bags got crammed in the back, packed like sardines. The tuktuk brought us to the trainstation, where we took the train all the way south to Galle. It was a nice two hour ride; looking out the window on your right side, there was the sea with her waves, for about 128 kilometers straight. Staring out of the window on your left, the view was very diverse: first kilometres of traffic in the city, then a lot of greens, the occasional river, boat builders, temples and other stations. To add to the colourful display: a splash of water - it was pouring rain the whole time.
