      ... a good 500ft in the air up some 350+ steps. All good practice for Sigiriya I thought, should we ever get there. The caves were impressive. There are five of them and they go under several names. The Golden Temple of Dambulla is probably your easiest google route. They are packed full of statues, over 150 I think, and though almost exclusively Buddhist there are two Hindu gods honoured too, Vishnu and Ganesh. The caves are super old. Even before the Buddhists used them as ...

Het is zaterdag vandaag en blijkbaar enorm druk. Het loopt er vol witte vrouwtjes die bloemen komen offeren. Aan de ingang staat een sloefenbewaker met nog enkele tanden die voor een halve euro zorgt dat we in onze eigen sloefen terug verder kunnen straks. Een goed gespendeerde halve euro dus! Also the 'Kelaniya Rajamaha ...

      ... gardens and even grow coffee trees, roasting and grinding their own beans. Ayurvedic medicine is very important to them, so they have a extensive knowledge of plants and herbs which are grown locally and used to treat many ailments. However, they also have access to good Western medicine and in fact we met the local midwife on her way to visit some of the communities this morning. Their cheerful spirit is infectious and there is always a greeting and a ...

      ... tooth is kept and worshipped. It was a lovely temple which we enjoyed wandering around. The tooth is only brought out at special festivals so we weren't lucky enough to see it. People come from all over to visit the temple and bring offerings. Lotus flowers, food, gifts and people sounded the doorway to the temple which held the tooth. We stayed at the temple for a while looking out from the rooftop ...
