      ... waarin een relikwie van Boeddha bewaard wordt. In Kandy is dat een tand maar elders kan dat een stukje bot, haar, kledij of zelfs zijn tandenborstel zijn. The temple we are visiting has Hindi as well as Buddhist images. An Indian prince had this temple built around 700 years ago after he married a Sri Lankan princess. What I always thought was a kind of holy clock is more like a urn where to keep some relic of Buddha. In Kandy it is a tooth but somewhere else it can be ...

      ... the sun is out. We finally make our last stop, around 60 km ride today......50 of it downhill, so not too taxing. Into the bus and make our way to Kandy, the bustling tourist mecca of Sri Lanka. Most of the hotels we have stayed, our group have been the only tourist, not here. No sooner have we arrived, a huge bus of Chinese unload. The accommodation is great, by far the best.......topping off and excellent day. We experience ...

We live on, seeking out the eternal; feeling, thinking, acting, exploring; all in the sense that it’s somehow meaningful, somehow bigger than what we already know. Tomorrow will bring new light, a new sense of wonder, and a whole host of unpredictable moments rapped into ...

      Today we packed our bags, once more, had breakfast and headed downstairs to meet our driver, Chamee. We arrived at the reception but we did not find our guy, he sent another person to take us on our 18 day journey without telling us. Not cool, we did not know what kind of car he had, if he had air-con, how his driving skills were and as soon as we drove out of the hotel parking, he got arrested by the police. ...

      ... so far, I told her, and she smiled and said to be prepared for a chaotic change of pace in Kandy. As we jumped off the bus in Kandy into the midst of crazy traffic and honking and swarms of people milling about every which way, I immediately understood what she meant. Though Kandy is arguably not as frenetic of a city as Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and we have been to much bigger cities since then, Kandy is nonetheless more intense than anywhere we have ...
