      ... plans to visit several National Parks, due to the cost, leaving us with days spare and the dilemma of what to do with them. For an Asian country, entrance fees are high. NP safari costs are rivalling those of Africa, but only offering half days and in most cases, less than half of the wildlife. Even Lucky suggested many of the things we wanted to do would cost a lot and that things here are now expensive. On a western scale, they are probably still ...

      February 10 (Day 47), Dennis and I tried to do like the locals and wait along the side of the road for a bus (rather than at a bus station). This made us prime targets for all of the tuk-tuk drivers trolling for Western passengers. We held out for a while, but we eventually gave in the pressure (and the prospect of waiting another 50 minutes for a bus) and agreed to a $6 ride to our next destination 40 minutes away, Dambulla.

      ... 9.30 and 18.30). During the ceremony the room where Buddha's left wisdom tooth is kept gets opened. Such a ceremony is related to the ancient traditions of drumming and sacred chanting in honor of the Tooth Relic. Finally the room is unlocked before a procession of the Buddhist monks. We could only see a shell that covers the Tooth, not the Tooth Relic itself. The Relic is shown to public once per 5 years (our guide has already seen it 13 times). Around 50,000 people ...
