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.

We were obviously freezing all the way there even though we put on our warm clothes. At least the fact that we were actually saving almost USD 10 was ...
... and we soon realised our feet were covered in baby leeches! Brushing them off quickly we hurried back before the impending train to our waiting tuk tuk. Only then did mum realise that hidden under her sandal strap a bigger one had taken hold and drawn blood. It was ironic as mum had read out a warning about them from the rough guide when we were nearer the coast. For dinner we wandered down into the village of Ella to eat beef and veg kotthu, ...
... we would be travelling up here (just maybe having a look!) how cool!!! The driver was very friendly and explained all the switches and gauges. The train was made in the USA and the gauges in Switzerland. He has been driving trains for 45 years and always the same type - they are very old. He will be taking the same train back along the same route tomorrow, the return journey to Colombo. We had noticed that at some platforms, the drivers ...
