Ein anerkennd britisches Haus. Hierrüber gehen die Meinungen und Beurteilung dermaßen auseinander, dass man meint der Grand Canyon sei eine winzige Felsspalte.
Dieses Haus ins in der Tat ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen, aber das tut dem englischen Charme keinen Abbruch. Man darf sich in dem grossen Speisesaal nur mit Krawatte und Jacket (diese kann man aber kostenfrei leihen) blicken lassen noch darf man sich davon abschrecken lassen hier bedient zu werden. Englische Attitute wird hier sehr ernst genommen. Darum war es Frauen wohl auch nicht gestattet dieses Haus durch die Eingangshalle zu betreten...

We followed an inclining path dully lit with a few steps here and there, which turned into flights of stairs with landings and eventually, no landing and continuous steps. 5002 of them to be exact. The path was fairly well paved with a reasonable amount of tea houses and smallest eateries along the way. The final quarter of the stairs were the hardest, as the incline was quite intense. As I'm not in full health, I did find this quite exhausting. ...
... waterfall and onto a tea plantation.
The next destination was Haputale, another train journey away. As the decision to leave Nuwara Eliya was made the night before, the only space on the train was standing up in the unreserved section of the train, next to the stinking toilet, probably on par with the stench at Glastonbury's loos!
After wandering round for over an hour, the friendly, family run place Carl and Adam ...
... I was unlucky in not spotting many animals that day. Now that I am done with Horton Plains, I could enjoy the vibrant shades of green in Ambewela on the way back. Many herds of cows were seen grazing. We saw some wind turbines in the hills on the distance as this is a potential favorable location for wind farms and wind energy development.
It was a nice walk to remember but quite expensive compared to South Asian standards!
Whatever, U2 ...
