          Hi, we have booked to go to Sri Lanka in January and are staying at Lara's place, Can you give me an idea if there is facility for pick up from Colombo Airport to take us to the Guest House and is there a cost involved? In addition how much is a taxi and can these be prebooked?

          Hi Lara, Hope you are well. I will be arriving with you tomorrow and stay for 2 nights. We are really looking forward to our stay and hope that you can Magic up some sunshine as we have only seen rain so far in Sri Lanka. We will be arriving by train and wanted to asked you a quick question. How much can we expect a tuk-tuk from the train station to your place to cost? I wouldnt want to get over charged! Thanks in advance for your help. Kind Regarda, Emmet
