    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.

    Days 15-16... Nuwara Eliya

    ... the ****** weather. We checked into a well known backpackers The Singletree Hostel and indulged in Indian for dinner. Having been up since before 2am, we went to bed and were asleep by 9pm.

    Our last day in Nuwara Eliya was pretty ordinary, with the town not really living up to our expectations. The surrounding tea plantations were nice, but not nearly as well manicured as those of Malaysia and India. We got a local bus to a tea factory and walked to a ...

    Nuwara Eliya - Haputale

    ... the stench at Glastonbury's loos! After wandering round for over an hour, the friendly, family run place Carl and Adam found was fantastic, with balconies over looking the lush, tea plantation-filed hills and a delicious home cooked vegetarian 'rice and curry' meal (including dessert). Haputale was no exception to the rain we had on and off since leaving Kandy. It was a shame, as we never really got to appreciate the view properly, in all its glory. Optimistically we ...

    ... walk around the neighborhood of the temple is very simple and interesting. Tooth Relic was brought to the temple on a giant elephant. The skeleton of an elephant reproduced in the museum at the church. The real elephant lives in the church today. Since elephants are very tidy animals - they need water treatments every day. We were lucky enough to see SPA treatment performed for the temple elephant - he had deep skin peeling. During the process elephant was gently snoring and asked to rub more ...

    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 ...

    ... walked up a street that had an assortment of sandal, clothing, fruit and fried treat stands, grabbing fried dahl patties, vegetable curry roties and an array of sweets for the bus as we found things that were interesting.
    Honey is popular in the area, so I was able to find these cool fried honey snacks?
    Good but very sweet!

    Back at the train station for some coffees, only to find out our train was delayed about 40 minutes.
    We passed the ...
