What you'll do
I will pick you up with my tuktuk from your guesthouse. We drive to Kalegana, a small village in Galle. We walk around the village and visit the places where people still practice the art of woodcarving. You can see how they work and see the beautiful statues they make. Then we walk back where we start the tour and drink a tea. And if you are lucky a coconut, without plastic straws! Local style :) No plastic during this tour! Then it's time to paint your own wooden elephant. Off course you can get some help if you need. When you are finished, it is time to say good bye and I will bring you back. With this tour you support a local family directly. If you want buy more souvenirs is also possible. You will get a good price and the maker get fair price so good for everybody!
