... t gone in with our guide who was waiting for money, but to be honest he hadn't really done much on the tour however interesting it was to see. As the tea was free, and a massive pot, I was very brave and had my first cup of tea ever. I did have it without milk as I'm not actually a milk person, and 2 spoons of sugar but I actually liked it and ended up having 1.5 cups as well as 2 slices of cake.

Day 1: January 20, 2014

So much so that we couldn't help but buy some to bring home. Their tea ...

... stones in exchange for coins. We took a few photos and watched with amusement as a bunch of monkeys crept up when no one was looking and stole some fruit which they then munched right in front of everyone - they have no shame! We then travelled to a little town called Ella and stopped in a restaurant for Sri Lankan vegetable soup (my new favourite Sri Lankan meal) and chips (my ever favourite meal) with more beautiful views. Ella means waterfall ...

... top floor of a fully furnished, self catering homestay, where our balcony gave way to a panoramic view of the rice fields below. After 3 months of restaurant dining, there was nostalgic pleasure in preparing and devouring a pesto infused Italian pasta dish, rounded off by a bottle of Hill & Dale Sauvignon Blanc all the way from the Stellenbosch Winelands. Katie's birthday began as any other. A lengthy, good morning foot tickle (just a tickle, get your minds out ...
