    Nice hotel over looking suburbs and the hills. Monkeys in the trees around the hotel. We stayed in room 103 which has a fantastic view through the large windows over the hills. Lovely to wake up too. Breakfast it a bit thrown together and can be cold. Dinner is nice. Booked a couple of trips from here which were good. Hotel is a bit noisy with thing walls and doors. doesn't mater much. Overall a good hotel.

    Today is an early start for the train ride to Kandy. This is meant to be a highlight of the trip because of the stunning views. The train was almost fully booked and we were only able to get 3rd class tickets. We are a bit worried as all the other westerners are taking either 1st class or observation class tickets in the flash end of the train. We …

    Another early start as we want to make the most of the day. Our driver meets us outside the hotel and seems like a really nice friendly guy. We head off to Sygiria Fortress which is about 2-3 hours drive from Kandy.

    Sigiriya Fortress (lion rock) is a 4th century fortress built on top of a huge 200 metre high rock.

    Amazing day today! Kandy is brilliant! Had a proper tikka masala for lunch and its nothing like the English version..My mouth is still firey, but it was lush. Seen wild Monitor Lizards, Monkeys and some cool birds. Booked once in a life time train tickets in a superior carriage to Nuwara Eliya and Ella for the weekend! Start my placement in Paeds tomorrow.. So for this evening it's Sri Lankan food (hothothot!) a couple of beers and chill out with my ...

    All aboard the Kandy train!

    ... is.

    Our train arrived at 6.50 and we went to out seats in the 'observation carriage'. A slightly mildewy spelling shabby old carriage at the back of the train with a glass window facing out over the tracks. The little carriage filled up mainly with tourists but also with a feww locals and monks and off we went.

    The journey took the best part of 3 hours but there were amazing views for the whole time. At 7am most people were heading ...

    ... there.

    Loads of monkeys were in the cemetery, mucking around and just chilling out. The gardener explained that they were a pest, and the regular bangs echoing around were fire crackers set off by the police to scare the monkeys off.

    Georgina wasn't a fan, and kept a good distance from them, having no food in our bags meant they left us well alone... unlike a couple of Aussie girls who had their bananas pinched.
