    ... All the way
    up people smiled at us and said hello. The children would giggle and hide
    behind their parents when we waved. On family asked to have a photo with Carrie
    and then explained to us a bit about the temple. Models of monks and monsters
    and Buddhas line the tortuous pathway to the top and tell stories or teach
    Buddhist morals. The views from the top were of vast rolling countryside and we
    felt we had stumbled on a real gem; in the hour we ...

    A reasonable time to start after our welcomed western breakfast. Legs a little wearie, not sure if it was the clinging on and balancing on the safari or the 40 flights of stairs we climbed!!

    ... just
    outside Kandy – an old colonial building which is lovely. Spacious rooms again and a lovely dining

    The driver took us, after yet another shower today, into town
    for a meal at an Islamic restaurant which was also very interesting and
    tasty. I had (not really Islamic, Sri Lankan)
    string hoppers with vegetables (given up on meat here) – which is basically
    very fine noodles which they then chop very fine.

    And then, bed!

    ... This means a daily collection of grass feed, so not uncommon to see men carrying large bundles of firewood or grass on the heads. The plantations have their own schools and children have access to a good education and free healthcare, but it seems difficult for these mainly Tamil workers and their families to ever leave this sort of life and most children will grow up to continue working on plantations. Tea workers are resourceful with ...
