    Day 5: Like any New Years day you appreciate a wee sleep in. Fortunately our next stop was only 1 hour up the road so we headed off at a respectable 9.30. Our NY day activity was cycling through the small villages around Giritale Tank (reservoir built in 7th century). Cycling around the waterways and villages of Giritale. This was a lovely way to spend the morning and early afternoon, just watching people as they went about daily life, bathing in river and greeting kids who ...

    We had a wake up call at 10am for a train, which we slept through! Eventually we dragged ourselves from our beds, showered and got ready for our next journey.

    After I had said goodbye to the Van der Poorten’s at their beautiful Plantation Home, it was a full hour before Nuwshad reached the northern town of Dambulla in the dry area of Sri Lanka. Dambulla is famous for its Royal Rock Temple caves carved into the side of a huge rock some 200m high.

    The climb was relatively straight forward, but the full heat of the dry area was fierce. Pilgrims of all ages were managing easily enough around me, ...

    ... to the hotel after a couple of hours. Being out of season, the hotel bar and restaurant area appeared to be closed, which was a shame as I could have quite happily had a few beers. Later on in our trip, we would learn that the best thing to do is to buy them in from the local beer shop and take them up to your room for later. It was just as well really, we were pretty exhausted as we bundled into bed listening to the roar of the Maha Oya river. ...
