Sorry I'm a bit late with this guys, but here is the entry for Sri Lanka. Had a fab time here, although by the end I'd had a bit too much curry, whatever happened to bland food!
The football coaching went very well and my thanks go to the Northumberland FA for supplying balls and kit. They certainly don't have a great deal, most kids play in barefeet and the pitches are more like car parks. Being the coach I am, I cleared the pitch before each session and its fair to say from the debris I removed you could build a small house! But the kids were great, always positive and the coaches want more of us to go out there, Robbo are you reading this? there current methods are a bit outdated.
It wasn't all work though, with Rhian and Steph I went to Kandy via an elephant orphanage and to the tea plantations. And also with the girls and Trevor we went to Unawatuna which was devastated by the tsunami and is a beautiful holiday resort on the south coast.
Next though, its back to an old friend and Sydney.
