    We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Our kids were extremely happy because the internet was great--the first hotel in Sri Lanka that we could say that about. The food was good, the beds were comfy, the staff were all really friendly. We even had visitors on our balcony--monkeys. We enjoyed watching them, but we were also told to keep our doors closed because they would come inside if we didn't. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and the view was lovely.

    Beautiful location. Comfortable stay. Just 2 things that makes me not give any rating better than 3. 1. Lack of additional blankets owing to full capacity in the hotel, not acceptable 2. Not so great food.

    Temple of Tooth, sweet tooth and taste of surgery

    ... an incredible sweet tooth and I have
    also discovered a cracking sweet shop here which does all kinds of cake,
    marshmallows, fudges, and various Indian sweets like ladoo; perhaps I didn’t
    need to import quite so much ‘emergency supply’ Haribo!

    The medical bit:

    I got to see the emergency trolley in action this week. A
    patient had just been discovered to be severely hyperkalaemic, one of the
    nurses informed the ...

    Then at dawn we saw the sun rise, all of us sat or stood in observance. Just holding our breaths and watching the valley below catch fire. Then we packed up, and reversed ...

    ... that we are in a jungle in Kandy, then the countless red faced macaques (monkeys) and the giant fruit bats are. All four of us (plus the driver) crammed into a tuk tuk and spent the day touring all the attractions. We visited a wood carving shop, a batik art shop, a gem factory, a war cemetery, a tea factory, a spice garden, a Kandyan Dance performance and the “Tooth Buddhist Temple”. Quite a bit in one day. ...

    ... where Kandy swells with Buddhists and tourists celebrating this annual event. They also pray for rain and Bruno says on the first day, without fail, it starts to drizzle and by the final day, it pouring cats and dogs. Apparently there are elephants painted and lit up with lights and fabulous colour and noise, so I expect some FB posts and take a brolly Sis!

    That evening, we went to the Temple of the Tooth. Sarongs in place and a sense of gravity. At ...

    ... at "Elegant Hotel" a really sort after b&b on the outskirts of town. The ride there was via tuk tuk as per normal and it was clear we once again were in a big city, the smog and smell was enough to justify looking like an Asian and wearing those ridiculous face masks. It took quite a while but we arrived at a beautiful well looked after hotel.The very camp owner showed us his 5 room pride and joy and it really was like nothing we've seen here. The kind ...
