Spending the night in the airport's convenient low-budget Tune Hotel, flying the next morning uneventfully with Malaysia’s Air Asia X (“Now Everyone Can Fly Xtra Long”) in a brand-new Airbus A 320-200 from Kuala Lumpur’s KLIA-LCCT to Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport near Katunayake for the steal of only MYR 40.- or US$ 12.- per person, one way and all inclusive, crossing again the unpredictable Gulf of Bengal which we had crossed for the first time two years ago on our sailing ship SY "Kamu II", being issued with a 30-day visit permit for Sri Lanka on arrival, free of charge, taking thereafter the complimentary shuttle bus from the airport's arrival terminal to Katunayake's Bus Station, then the local bus from Katunayake to Negombo's Bus Station (c. 10 km, 1/2 hour, LKR 20.- or US$ 0.18 per person) and lastly one of the ubiquitous three-wheelers, aka túk-túks from the noise of their engines, right to the beach of the Indian Ocean (c. 3 km, 1/4 hour, LKR 200.- or US$ 1.80 for the short ride to the recommended Dephani Beach Hotel +94312234359) where the fresh southwest monsoon with its steady strength of 25 knots is blowing the mosquitoes away.
"Climate change is real. Climate change is being substantially increased by humans and the carbon we put into the atmosphere. And it appears to be speeding up. If science has made any mistakes, science has been underestimating it."
