      ... was no sight of a toilet or indeed space to move to it. This did not stop a succession of pedlars squeezing through to sell various snacks wrapped in pieces of paper torn from used homework books. We arrived back at Colombo Fort station 2 1/2 hours later ready for the next leg of our journey into the hills. A bottle of ginger beer kept us fortified for the afternoon until our train to Kandy arrived. We had booked a super-duper deluxe carriage but although it did have ...
