    ... back at the train station where we met our NEW best friend, who's air conditioned van couldn't have been a more welcome ride. That drive through the winding mountains has got to be the most breathtaking journey of my life... We passed through countless perfectly domed tea plantations set out into neat little rows, watching the local Tamil women in their bright coloured saris picking the baby leaves, with a backdrop of cascading dramatic mountain peaks. We arrived at the White House ...

    ... a bit more expensive (still only a quid each for Kim, Myself and the bags) and not as much fun. It did have a/c that just about worked though! We sat in our seats and excitedly worked our way through the short eats, trying to work out what they all were. The views from the bus were pretty decent.

    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 ...

    some pics from today. most of the elephants names are most likely spelled wrong, as i learnt them by hearing. i think its very important for the elephants to walk around free, but this happens only up to 20 mins a day (if even that). improvements have to be done and there is a "freedom fence" project that hopefully will happen when enough money have been ...
