Car - Visit to Polonnaruwa, the remains of a royal ancient city once the capital city and now a World Heritage site. By car.
A village safari back near our hotel. By tuk tuk, catamaran canoe, short trek and oxen cart. The most bone jarring ride ever - but great fun! The guide even let me paddle the canoe and we didn't drown or get lost! Our hats were hand made of large water lily ...

And that's when we hit a slight problem. There was a small impasse cutting across the footpath we were taking and it sure as hell looked as if it was going to join the upper section of the path we were currently on. So we took it.
