Leopard spotted (sorry, all out of original ideas)

A travel blog entry by williment

Despite our Rough Guide warning us that leaving Ella by bus was sure to be an unseated mistake we manage to bag a couple of seats and squish our luggage on too with no particular bother. We then leave the hill country behind and above us - the bus taking the beautiful winding route straight through Ella gap. Once we hit the planes the miles just …

... unless you are in Leopard season. We were told that we would not see leopards as it is way to hot for them during this time of the year, June and July being the ideal time to observe these cats.

Lakshman told us that not one dead animal had been found after the Tsunami - they had all migrated away from the area before it happened. There were also four metal I think the only things we didn't get to see we're leopards and sloth bears (which sound amazingly cute!) and which are apparently endemic to Yala, I think, certainly Sri Lanka.
