About the Tuk tuk drives and S.I.: a Tuk tuk ride from Arugam Bay to whiskey point costs 1400 LKR one way, as far as I know according to the standard price of the Tuk Tuk Drivers Association. Every honest licensed driver (including S.I.) will show the price list when asked. Tuk Tuk riding is not cheap: gasoline is not cheap and the Tuk Tuk break down beyond repairs every three years when used often off road like in the area. Since S.I. takes care of check ins and check outs, he has to travel to the place, with no gain at all but incurring all the travel and opportunity costs just to check in and check out my guests (who help me cover maintenance costs but I do not make profits either), it makes sense that he drives the guests to the place from Pottuvil, Arugam Bay or another city within Tuk Tuk range, so he has the opportunity to know a potential customer. If you come with another Tuk Tuk you still pay 1400 LKR to the other driver, and S.I. incurs in all the costs for nothing; moreover you burn in total twice the gasoline, which makes the climate and me angry ;-) . Please let your first and last travel be with S.I. as it will not cost you more.
