Driving the Hill Country and Drinking Tea

... hills, past waterfalls and cutting between tea plantations. We were massively fortunate as the sky stayed totally clear and an amazing shade of blue for us all through the day.

We stopped for some morning tea at "The Castle" a relatively new site built by one of the largest tea suppliers in the country - lovely tea and a solid Steak Sandwich of which I was in great need after missing breakfast in favour of the Police Station that morning.

We also stopped at ...

Public buses are about one-tenth the cost of a tuk tuk. I was the only Westerner on both bus rides and I got stared at a lot. Nothing new after weeks in India and Sri Lanka, however one subtle man even moved his seat so he could sit behind me and stare more closely. Sri Lankan men love to stare and immediately ask ...

... road we were on and we could still be back in time to catch the 1 pm train. We reached the turnoff to Thotupala Kanda and we could see the beautiful Nelu flowers lining the little trail on both sides. For some reason, I saw an uncanny resemblance in this image to the scenes of ‘The Last Samurai’. It was that beautiful. But as the age old saying goes ‘Once bitten, twice shy’. Literally that made sense. We could hear the faint buzz of the honey bees in ...

... Its then a further 1.5km hike to the falls themselves along a rocky track set in the hillside, go during the week, it gets rammed at weekends. Foreigners pay 200 rupees to enter. Unfortunately you are not to swim in these falls, but you can paddle in some of the shallow pools. The hike back to the entrance is uphill so take some water.

Returning back to Ella, myself and Amit agreed to meet up later in the evening for a "Quiet Meal". Im starting to ...

... the riverbank and when we got to the bottom I could feel something on my foot..looked down to see a leach trying to latch onto my skin it was wriggling on its head!! Eww! The others noticed they were everywhere. We had two boats so Beth, Vicky, James and I got into one and George, Lauren, Kristine and Alice got in the other! We were the first to embrace the rapids and although I was frightened beyond belief I was also so excited! It was so much fun I was buzzing! ...

    The people that run this place are great and they have been very helpful. However I am still frustrated about having a pay issue when I arrived. The rooms were not so great as they stayed pretty damp the entire time. I am sure this place is fine for most backpackers.
