|They were also professional tourist prop and charged for fees|
I think because the fort is walled, it was hot to walk around during day time but cools down at night. Most of the guidebooks has a walking guide that you could do but we took it easy, poked our noses in the shops, ate, checked out bigger monuments like the light house, ate, walked around the fort for sunset, ate... that was pretty much it.

|A very non mosque looking mosque|
|There was not really any sunset, more clouds than sun actually|
|The locals hanged out at the fort looking for the sunset too actually|

It was probably a better sunset from the train bounding to Colombo Fort from Galle that we took, but this was taken from inside the train.
We paid LKR 2,700 / ~USD 18 / ~AUD 25 for a called cab. The prices of tuk-tuk and taxi quoted from Colombo Fort to airport was too expensive and our haggling failed. So we rang up for a taxi from Kangaroo Cabs (yes, this is Sri Lanka, not Australia). S and I shared the taxi with another traveller who was also going to the airport.
Side note: Happy birthday to me...
