We havn't even been here for an hour and I think it's already the best hotel of the trip so far. When we came in we were welcomed with hot soup. The whole building is an old Scottish club house. They even serve high tea here.

There were also loads of bats in the gardens too which made for some great pictures of them hanging in the trees. There was also ...
... later I reached it with only a large stick in the ground marking it! I also visited another incredible temple. I just love them so much. On Tuesday I splurged for an observation class train ticket (about £8) on the old school colonial train from Ella to Nuwara Eliya. The view and landscapes were incredible. It was one of the best things I've done. Sri Lanka is just gorgeous. The town of Nuwara Eliya, on the other hand, is mostly a shithole. Luckily, ...
... hillside light up and the stars are amazing, its like being in Pirates of the Caribbean.
In hindsight I look at what I did that day and all things considered it was pretty reckless and dangerous.
