... hotel, we set off at 2 am and past many street peddlers to where we started our pilgrimage, with hundreds of Sri Lankans, no one had mentioned this to us. The 11 km journey to the foot of Adams foot in the temple at the top of the peak (7,245 feet above sea level) was slow as we had to make our way past old ladies and young children who needed assistance from their families. Deanna's tummy was rumbling from dinner the night before. ...
