    ... some ice cream." Luckily, ice cream tuk-trucks (as I call them) could hear my thoughts and conveniently put-putted up to me. Problem solved!

    After several hours, we cycled back to our guesthouse for beers and showers. However, like Dambulla, there's no beer. That of course prompts a WTF reaction from me, because this is not a Muslim, Mormon, or otherwise dry nation. I am stymied here- this is a deliciously cheap place to backpack, ...

    ... the way to travel for the majority of locals so I counted myself very lucky if I managed to grab a seat. I also counted myself even more grateful if I made it to my destination in one piece as the driving on the roads is ridiculous!!

    ... 3-4 days! We had lunch at a place called rasta rant which had hammocks all over their garden - a great break after the big climb! Around 1 we headed to Polionaruwa and I even managed to have a sleep on the way as the roads were a lot better than most we've come across.

Google maps directed us down a terrible road and we had to trek through jungle and climb through barn wire fences to get to ...

    ... behave normally. I do not get ignored for long that way. I also don’t get upset because this is very much a cultural thing anchored in people’s mind. I just hope that by our little behaviours here and there, we can slowly change their perception of the woman. Ironically, in every guesthouse we stayed when husband and wife were serving, it has always been her under control and simply getting the job done. Men usually were a lot more clueless and tended to stand ...
