Colombo -> Kandy

... hard werken. Hij heeft toch enige ambitie en zakelijk instinct blijkt uit latere gesprekken want hij runt de website voor 500 kleine winkels in het shopping district van Colombo. Hij wil dit graag verkopen en met dat geld extra kamers bouwen. Hij denkt eraan een traditionele kleihut te bouwen in de tuin. Er zijn namelijk toeristen die veel geld willen betalen om in een traditionele kleihut op de grond te slapen? We are staying around 25km from Kandy in a bed & breakfast ...

... that was free of all things putrid. The area felt quite wealthy.

Kandy was the last Sinhalese Kingdom that fell to Britain in 1815. It has a population of 112,000 so, much smaller than previous regions we have visited. It's pretty and green and hilly and the biggest annual celebration is end of July, beginning of August called Esala Perahera, celebrating the Buddhas tooth, a relic held at the Temple of the Tooth.

Sissy will be here for that ...

... out at sea for over 5 hrs but unfortunately didn't see much :( What we did see was a family of dolphins about 50 metres away briefly and a puff of air from a whales back from about 100 metres but was disappointed really. Mirissa was a very nice beach though and took full advantage of the 5pm-10pm happy hour(s)! After Mirissa we had to get 2 busses to Yala National Park, we met a guy on the bus who asked where we were going and we explained and he was actually a ...

... Lonely Planet said that the orphanage had turned into a bit of a zoo, I tend to agree as it is always hard to see some animals chained up, but on the other hand if the orphanage did not exist then 2 little elephants would of been left down a well and drowned. We then moved on to the millennium elephant foundation, here we helped to wash the elephants and got a short ride... We were ...

... building found in the centre of a paved courtyard, open to devotees during puja. The tooth is said to have been snatched from Buddha's funeral pyre in 483 BC and smuggled into Sri Lanka in the hair of a princess. It became a symbol of sovereignty, snatched by both the Indians in 1283 and the Portuguese in the 16th century. The Portuguese even claim to have burned the tooth in Goa, although the Sinhalese insist the Portuguese stole a replica while the tooth ...

    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.
