Tired legs in a city.

... and fairly used to going in many places anyway. Before we had got on the bus we had looked around one of the markets for a bit, mainly just some fruit shops. It was interesting being able to try the different fruits, but I'm not a fan of being hassled by most stalls to try their fruit, and buy stuff. I personally found Kandy rather overwhelming, I'm never very good in cities, and think even less so here, as they see us as tourists and think we all have a lot of money and ...

This is a top pick!

... Today, we take the 12:50 p.m. train to Colombo. We shelled out a few extra rupees for the inter-city express train. After paying, we learned that the fast track will take us only three hours to get there ... the whole 110 kilometres.

Real time: Horrible www connections have caused blog delays.
Elenka was weak kneed and I had a headache from the heat of our train car to Colombo. So we decided ...

... to go to yet another temple called Temple of the Tooth which is what most people come to Kandy for but when we got there it was a 1000 rupee entrance fee, we both looked at each other and clearly had the same thoughts so we left it. There is only so many temples you can see before you lose interest! We then were back on the road to go to Pinnawella where there is a elephant orphanage/sanctuary which you can feed them and watch them bathe which will be really good I ...

... I am approaching my lesson there this afternoon with a different plan, to try and make it more successful for both myself and them! Instead of using worksheets the majority of the lesson will be songs/dance activities to learn body parts (such as head shoulders knees and toes, okie cokie etc) followed by a group activity of creating a human body and labelling it. I hope that works out a bit better - if anything it should tire them out a bit! It would be much more helpful if ...

... Love You" or similar) and generally enjoying the ambience and the kingfishers. Finishing the days with a cup of Sri Lankan tea on the balcony as the mist rolls in is pretty unbeatable. Even if there are quite a lot of those pesky white people about. Our waiter (waji, who we are advising on his new travel agency) even had the audacity to ask why I hadnt changed colour even though we had been here 2 weeks. Ooh if he could have seen my sunburn. He doesn't know how expertly I can change ...

    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.
