      ... Triangle (see next blog entry) which would start and end back in Kandy. The daily cost of which was almost half than that of the offer from Sam, lesson learned.

      The Food

      By far the best part of Kandy was the food. After finding this awesome food blog from another traveller on the internet we got a good idea of the foods we wanted to try and this was our first decent opportunity since arriving.

      ... of a path nodded at by those around me? Would I sacrifice freedom for security? When I board a plane, wandering off into a life that seems to lure me away from tradition and common sense, am I running away from something, or towards it?
