      ... relatively well maintained with a plethora of excellent toilets. After about two hours with even the more gentle Kandy heat beginning to rise we stopped off at the slightly faded cafe, everything is really slightly faded here, for a very pleasant pot of Ceylon tea, though Roz had a warming lime soda as the waiter understood no ice to mean warm. She does not believe that drinking warm tea to be thirst quenching - yet. Returning to the centre of Kandy we mooched about for a ...

      ... not eaten since my 10am cold toast over 9 hours earlier, I was staaarving, and quickly ordered curry and rice, and more importantly after such a long journey, a beer (Lion, the local lager, is pretty good!) When the food arrived, I think there are few moments when I've looked at a plate in such greedy anticipation... The portion was HUGE and it smelled amazing, tasting even better.

A neighboring king came to overthrow him and the king's army quickly laid down their arms and ran for the jungle. The king, alone and defenseless, slit his ...

      ... respective dishes and didn't actually do a great deal of sharing in the end. We left with full bellies, burning mouths and a warm send off from the guys running the place.

      After finally arriving, it was dark, and our guesthouse had arranged for a friend to pick us up in his tuk tuk. Okay, so first experience in a tuk tuk was in the rain, up the steepest, bumpiest little road into the hills!! I was clinging on for dear life, whereas Grace thought it was the best thing ever haha! Trying to keep my rucksack from falling out the 'boot' by leaning against it, holding on tight, and watching the view as we went higher up the hill was lots of fun ...
