    Great atmosphere at this tranquil hotel, a ten minute walk from the center of Nuwara Eliya. The rooms are spacious with thick blankets, which are a necessity for the chilly nights.

    It's easily forgotten when you're travelling that everyone else is working as usual, so we ended up squeezing onto a local, public bus with all our rucksacks in rush hour to travel back to Kandy, to spend one night before journeying to Nuwara Eliya. We were standing up, glued to strangers, whilst …

    ... in the cold but tragically
    the mist did not clear and the wind was strong. In the end the only sunrise we
    noticed was that the fog gradually lightened, we weren’t allowed up to see the
    rock because of ‘dangerous winds’, we began our decent. I still feel
    disappointed to have missed it, but this is monsoon off-season and this is the
    price we pay. It’s Thursday now and I can still feel the ache in my calves from
    the climb!

    Awoke early and we are above the cloud which is quite spectacular - peaceful, the birds are chirping and of course a few dogs barking. I head to breakfast around 7am whilst Jim catches up on the dramas at work - no one is around and it's nice to watch the sun appearing on the distant buildings and slowly melts the clouds and more of the valley comes into view. And then the monkeys come along the roof and down the trees and we,are assured that they are harmless although our guide ...

    We had wanted to catch a train from Kandy to Ella but the tickets from Kandy were sold out. Instead, we went from Peridaya - about 5km from Kandy. The route is known for its scenic views so we decided to take the observation class as this is a carriage at the back of the train with two big windows at the end of the train. At Kandy and Peridaya train stations, we felt like we had stepped back in time. The ticket offices resemble a ...

    The tuk-tuk driver who called me Elenka

    ... that didn't explain the "Elenka" factor.

    We told the tuk-tuk driver that we still wanted to go to the guest house we had contacted before going to an alternate place. He agreed and off we went. Damned if the owner didn't come out with apologies, saying that he hadn't checked his e-mail in a timely fashion, and that in fact there was no room at the inn. We talked for about 15 minutes regarding alternatives. Then off we went again. Elenka looked at ...
