      We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.

      Kandy to Nanu Oya. (Tuk-tuk to Nuwara Eliya)

      First an apology. Memory card virused, currently sorting out. Latest pics including hopefully stunning ones of Sigiriya, may take a while coming.

      So to the train journey. The 8.47 from Kandy. Bit ripped off for tickets but betting used to that in Sri Lanka. And what can I say? 40 miles in 4 hours illustrates the hill climbs and bends. Spent a lot of the journey ...

      Sri Lanka , good place to stay

      ... Improvements than on silly oversized Presidents Pictures Billboards. The import Taxes on all Vehicles are an hefty 250% and Energy Taxes are also very high. It seems there would be enough money coming to improve peoples live , but I guess the spend the money rather on their own Live Luxuries and unnecessary self promotion. Even the 250% Tax on Cars wont discourage people buying Cars ...

      ... our way back to ohiya where we literally hopped into a mail train. The train was so full that we had to sit in the luggage compartment. It was interesting as there are no lights and one section of track goes through 14 tunnels. The doors are not so much doors as holes in the cart so we had access to amazing views. The poor people in the only other 2 carts were literally holding on to the outside of the train and even on the roof !

      Like being at home...not always in a good way!

      ... of the companies who own them. Amongst these were some familiarly British names: Rothschild, Inverness and Finlays are all huge plantations in the area, a sign of the history of the industry.

      Once reaching Nuwara Eliya, we settled down into a pretty cottage, complete with oak floors and beams, that could easily have been lifted from home. The only downside, after I had adjusted to baking Sri Lankan weather, the cottage had no central heating and this was a shock to ...

      ... a home by the track
      - huge gold statues of the Buddah
      - cutest little school children with oversized green backpacks coming home from school
      - amazing sunset over the hills once we got closer to Kandy
      - tuks tuks waiting at level crossing, beeping their horns and flashing their lights!

      We also had to get used to some of the locals staring at us whilst sat on the train... it's definitely making me feel self conscious but hoping its something I get used ...
