We checked into the hotel in Kandy, which was situated by the River? The view from my room was lovely, so I went out onto the balcony to look at the river and bird life. The balcony door closed and I heard a click. I realised with horror that the door was self locking and I was locked on the balcony. I reached into my pocket for my phone and it wasn’t there. I looked in the bedroom window and I saw my phone lying there on the bed next to the cup of tea, I had made for myself. I tried the door again and swore a few times when I realised it really was locked and I was stuck on the balcony. Nobody was around to help me out of this situation. It was 6pm – just the time that the mosquitos come out. I hoped somebody would miss me and come looking for me. i decided to start shouting for help and maybe someone would here. So I shouted “Help” a few times and luckily my clients in the next room heard me and called reception. I was very relieved.
