Wir hatten einen richtigen Pechtag in Jaffna hinter uns und haben relativ spontan das Hotel gebucht. es ist eher unauffällig, aber total ausreichend. Das Team ist total hilfsbereit und freundlich, man fühlt sich gleich wohl. Sanjheevan hat unseren Tag gerettet, da er sich spontan dazu bereit erklärte, uns für sehr kleines Geld mit einem tuctuc die Stadt und seine Lieblingsorte zu zeigen. Wir durften am nächsten Tag außerdem eine hinduistische Gotteszeremonie eintauchen und so dem Land etwas näher kommen. Wir bedanken uns und kommen sehr gerne wieder
