    Het ritje van Colombo naar Kandy duurde iets langer dan gepland maar we zijn er geraakt. We vragen de chauffeur om eerst nog even te stoppen aan het 'Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre', een mooie staalconstructie genaamd naar de huidige president Mahinda Rajapaksa. The drive from Colombo to Kandy took a little longer than expected but we reached destination. We ask the driver first to make a stop at the 'Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre', a beautiful steel ...

    ... bombing in 1998 and a replica of the casket, containing the tooth, which is carried by a male elephant through the town during religious ceremonies. The tooth itself is only displayed to the public once in every six years, but we visited the chamber where it is held and made flower offerings to the Buddha. Buddhists believe that making offerings at Sri Dalada Maligawa will grant you wish, but unfortunately mine has already not come true - never mind, the flowers ...

    Trickle alert

    A travel blog entry by cornevanhoepen on Dec 10, 2013

    Today we began our second day at the orphanage. We were welcomed by a bunch of smiling faces... and some not so smiley. Loreen began her morning working in the wheelchair group, and I had to keep a group of ten children occupied. I have to say I spent most of my time dodging flying objects. The reason our title is called trickle alert, is because its a code Loreen and I use when we work together. these kids have no control of ...
