    ... a pile of rocks so it was lucky they moved it when they did)

    But really a bit disappointed in the area. Too many Dagobas and not much else. Interesting all the same.

    Started at 7.30 and finished about 3 – just before the rain. Seems to be a daily event each afternoon about 3. And heavy. At least it cools the air a bit although the humidity is still high. All my clothes feel damp although sweat has a bit to do with that. Not ...

    ... must have been meaningful in some way.

    After sweating some more, we decided to make our way down, where we met Qunitus and found a must quicker way down.

    ... phone, gesturing for me to pose with them. I then asked if I too could get a picture, more out of confusion about what was going on than anything. Throughout my time there, a lot of children kept staring and giggling at me, pretending to walk off then hiding round corners to get a better look. I now know what it feels like for animals at a zoo. After a quick trip to the train station to book my tickets to Negombo on Friday, I took a cheap lunch at a chain ...

    ... bathe in the afternoon heat - and judging by the groans of delight it is one of the few highlights of the elephants day. A mixed bag of feelings with this place. A quick lunch of soup and of again for an alleged 2 hour drive to our next hotel, our home for the next 3 nights! So 3 1/2 hours later we have arrived in Habarana.
