      ... I got the last seat on the bus, and from there on in it was a hell hole. SO MANY PEOPLE. All stuck together, literally: moist sticky arms peeling off each other for nearly four hours, with screaming children and bickering parents, all as frustrated as me that the crammed, bumpy bus was the only option that sweltering morning.

      Arriving into Negombo with a couple of hours to spare, I checked into Honors Club hotel early and managed to grab a shower before heading off to the ...

After the spice market, we grabbed a quick lunch and dropped our bags off at a hotel in Sigiriya selected by our tour company.

It ...

      ... According to the history, one of the Buddha's devotees saved a tooth from the Buddha's funeral pyre in the 5th century BC, and it was smuggled into Sri Lanka in the 4th century AD. Whoever held the tooth held the crown in Sri Lanka, so the tooth became an important symbol of sovereignty and the right to kingship. Ruins of tooth temples exist at both Anuradhapura and Polonnoruwa, and the tooth eventually ended up in Kandy with the move of the Sinhalese ...

      ... if you're ever this way. Not just for a good reason to escape the city! It's full of beautifully sculpted lawns and tree collections, with a spice garden, cactus house, orchid house etc. Lots of 'avenues' of special palm trees to walk though, big old fig trees sprawling branches in every direction.

      Happy to be leaving Kandy, we had decided to spend our last two weeks at the beach - a little of a holiday if you will, before returning home to face reality. ...
