Vandaag is de laatste dag van Esala Perahera, het grootste Boeddhistische festival in Sri Lanka. Het duurt 10 dagen en schijnt prachtig te zijn. Duizenden Boeddhisten vanover het ganse land en daarbuiten, komen naar Kandy om dit spektakel te aanschouwen. Het heeft iets te maken met de tand van Boeddha die hier in een tempel ligt en die elk jaar de stad wordt rondgereden met een stoet van olifanten en dansers. Tot grote ergernis van Sakula wordt dit festival commercieel ...

Colombo to kandy

A travel blog entry by hannahbarnett on Dec 09, 2013

... lovely people, lovely room. We were going to have an early night and abandon dinner but the guesthouse owner said next door have good food. So we thought lovely a little bedtime local curry... Wrong, the hotel next door is slightly above our price range to stay but for dinner all good - very swish, buffet, BBQ, desserts all very exciting. To top it off there was entertainment from a local Sri Lankan group singing Hotel California like I have never heard ...
