26th was also Nick’s birthday. The dawn chorus was melodious and a soft mist rose from the lake. A big, black wild boar grunted and ambled across the field in the valley below. Palm trees swayed in a gentle breeze and bright brown Brahminy Kites with gleaming white heads floated lazily above as we sipped tea on the terrace. Nick was wearing a Sri Lankan sarong and west and everybody smiled and nodded in approval. It was the perfect start to the day.

We were at the Albatross on Victoria lake near Kandy.
