Enjoying Kandy (and the bakeries)

A travel blog entry by tomandgem


... curries for dinner. We were treated to banana, pumpkin, cabbage and coconut, chicken and dal curries - all in one sitting! We wondered around Kandy’s market and bought a coconut and some red bananas, which were very tasty. Kandy also has many bakeries - which we enjoyed. We decided to sit down for breakfast one morning and observed how the locals were ordering. It seemed that they ordered a big plate of sandwiches and pastries, which ...

Hand feeding the orphaned elephants

A travel blog entry by hayleymarsh


Feeling much less than average this morning (not with a hangover as may be suspected), I struggled to get myself going but was determined not to miss out on what was promised to be a fantastic day.

Umbrella attack!

A travel blog entry by cornevanhoepen


We had a very frustrating time walking through Kandy on Wednesday. Total culture shock if you ask me.
