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.

The bus took forever, as there was lots of construction work, but we got there eventually. Once again, we were met at the bus station, by someone trying to get us to stay in there guesthouse. We walked with him to the hotel and took a look at the rooms - we had to haggle pretty hard, but in the ...
... he agreed. I had quick chat to him and he was actually a nice guy who was building his guesthouse but ran out of money and literally only finished the first room. He took me for a tour of his unfinished house and where everything would go. He used to own the property the other bungalows were on but sold them to make his dream guesthouse. He was only there earlier as a tuk tuk driver for the bungalows. With a bit more chatting I started to warm to the guy and when ...
... in the gardens where a number of trees had been planted by previous visitors to the gardens, including members of the English royal family and many other famous people. Moving on from Kandy, we headed towards Nuwara Eliya, an area of Sri Lanka well known for its tea plantations. The scenery on the drive was beautiful and very very green. As we made our way through the mountainous region, we were very lucky to have ...
