      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.

      ... to a safari around Minneriya National Park, mainly to see elephants in the wild. I think we were running a little late as our driver nearly burnt his foot pressing the accelerator through the floor of his jeep. A whistle stop hour and a half and perfect timing as we were able to view two herds of Ellies as the sun went down. We were almost the last to leave and our driver apologised for driving so fast again but he didn't want to get fined ...

      ... enjoying the vistas and contemplating what it was going to be like going home. There were plenty of things that we missed from home, not least our friends and family, but it was going to be tough getting back to normality. We talked about quite how much we had done in the last six months and reflected on what had been an incredible period in our lives.

      ... factory of a smaller plantation which unfortunately was not in action what with it being a Sunday, but did give a great little insight into tea production.

      Final stop for the day was Nuwara Eliya, also known as Little England for its numerous British influences around town.
      The Aussies were staying out of town so we had a late lunch and said our good byes. I stupidly didn't take an email address so have no way of thanking these guys or repaying the favour but ...

      ... of 100 rupees, 50 pence! The 5 course meal was served in the Grand formal dining room by waiters all dressed in white including the gloves. We felt we were amongst the privileged classes! The food was delicious with a distinctly European flavour and the evening culminated being served tea by the roaring log fire, with a photo of Queen Elizabeth looking down on us. An unforgettable experience but we will certainly be back to our favourite Rice and Curry ...

      ... took great delight in attempting to run around the place shouting out, "bum, bum, BUM!" at what seemed like a million decibels. Needless to say, we felt more at ease outside with the kids. There was also a tiny museum and an area where you can light a candle. The children, to be honest, were more taken by the chickens scratching around outside and the random elephant in the grounds.

      After about an hour, we decided to move on from the temple and head off for lunch. ...
