at Travelodge, Prince George
At Prince George, we checked into Travelodge. This is an old hotel in a quiet area of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. We got a big room with two queen beds.
Prince George is a relatively big city with a population of over 60,000. But like all other Canadian cities there is hardly any night life. They close all the shopping malls at 6:00PM. Restaurants are open till about 9:00PM.
Malisha checked the Internet and managed to find a Sri Lankan restaurant that specialises in South Indian cuisine. We decided to go there for dinner mainly out of curiosity.
The young lady who was in charge was probably the owner. She came and talked to us and later sent the chef to meet us. The Chef is a Sri Lankan lady. She is initially from Jaffna and her parents are still living in Jaffna. Her husband came to Canada first about 12 years ago. She got married to him and came to Canada in 2007. She was very nice and it was great talking to one of the new locals that still cooked great Sri Lankan food.
The food was quite good and very authentic. Trip Advisor readers have rated this restaurant as the second best restaurant in Prince George.
I finally managed to upload some photos that were taken during our drive from Kamloops to Prince George.
