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 were picked up at 9.30am by our driver/tour guide Krishna. He was a lovely guy, smiley and spoke very good English. He started out driving a tuk tuk like thousands of other Sri Lankans until one day a tourist admired his happy personality and set him up on Trip Advisor, he very humbly told us that day changed his life.
The trip out of Kandy and into the hill country of Nuwara Eliya was three hours, this went so quickly as we chatted all the way, ...

Eliya, Sri Lanka’s “Little England”, the highest town in the country at about
1,900 meters (more than 6,000 feet). The landscapes and formal gardens were
lush, the climate delightfully cool, and the hotels and official buildings half-timbered in the style of Merry Olde England. This was the favored place for the British in the Ceylon era to go to bear the heat for rest and relaxation. I wanted ...
Ella is the highest elevated city in Sri Lanka (1,000 meters) and the drastic elevation change creates a diverse landscape that is lush and vividly striking. Alex and I found ourselves in a picturesque town, offering very little other than a chance to trek the surrounding region, a refreshing change from the southern tourist-clad beaches.
Ella is an outdoor playground ...
... we wanted to enjoy the views as well as to take some cool pictures.
From the World´s End you can look down a cliff 870 m in height and on a clear day one can see all the way to the sea. Tea estates and the river may be also seen. World´s End is a perfect place to understand the nature of the cloud forest. Clouds form when hot air from the lowlands created by daily heating rises and condenses by cooling at high altitudes. By the way, Horton Plains National Park contains ...
... was handy as we didn't spot any restaurants nearby!! Dinner was served with the other 8 guests around a dining table and the food was delicious! Vegetable fried rice, deviled prawns, deviled fish and salad. So tasty. I've been seeing 'deviled' food on many menus - I think it must mean a bit spicy, bit tomato-y. And pudding of a set mousse, first time I've had pudding here - so good! I was so full!! And time for bed. Bit odd that 2 of our windows don't have ...
