Breakfast. We usually get up around 7:00 or 7:30 and have breakfast at 9:00. There is always fresh fruit - right now, pineapples and bananas are in season. In this guest house, there are always white toast, little round rotis, pancakes rolled around a mixture of coconut and 'honey' (a kind of palm syrup), and 'something else' - in this case, the semicircular string noodles stuffed with more coconut and honey, or eggs, or ...! There is always very flavourful tea as well as the only type of coffee which now grows in Sri Lanka, which tastes a bit like mud. Sri Lanka used to have huge coffee plantations (British), but focussing on monoculture created conditions for a devastating blight, and the fungus is still in the soil. This occurred just at the time that the tea industry was taking off (introduced by James Taylor (not the singer) in the 1860's and massively commercialized by Thomas Lipton...).
