... hour and a half. Unload the bikes and a few more k's until which reach our lunch spot. Basic, but nice.....and cheap. Today's, 150 rupee each, $1.20. Again much nicer than the Galle Fort Restaurant.....sorry for repeating myself. Lunch done, we are off again. It's flat for the first 8km, then uphill. The landscape is beautiful, with a mixture of forest and tea plantations. The climb starts to hurt. We climb from around 200m to 1041m, with ...

... We had worried that we would get in to Ella pretty late by taking the later train, as we had heard that Sri Lankans measure when trains arrive by either "a quarter of a day late" or "half a day late," but the train arrived in Ella right on time.

In between Kandy and Ella, we were treated to 6.5 hours of stunning hill country vistas as we made our way over the lush green mountains through cloud forests and verdant tea plantations. Dennis ...

As its something those of us in western world cannot do there was a ...

... but the view wasn't as nice this way. There was a group of children sticking up posters onto the tea plants. From what we could gather (it was in mostly Sinhalese script), it was the funeral notice of an old lady - 82. How sad. Back into town around 11.30am and we hopped onto a bus headed for Bandarawela (cost 16p and barely a 5 minute wait). The bus was full of bags of beans and purple coloured parsnip. It's Sunday market day! It took half an hour ...

... by us - and the driver was turned around leaning out and waiving at us. It was our driver from yesterday!!!! How funny is that. And how lovely that he remembered us! We knew he was heading back the same way today, but didn't know the time - so what a coincidence that we bumped into him! After that, the rest of the way was pretty normal. As normal as walking down the railway track is. At a large prayer tree (covered in flags) we turned off the railway and headed across the ...
