... It took just over two hours to reach Kandy, again along reasonably good roads. The scenery changed quite quickly, no palm trees in sight, loads of spice farms and mountain ranges becoming apparent as we neared Kandy. We sadly had to say goodbye to Lucky. We wished he was could take us a little further, but are so happy we were able to do the harder to reach areas with him, especially through the sites that require the knowledge of a guide. After ...

It is truly one of the mist ecological sustainable and well run national parks I have ever seen. ...
... a relic - a Buddha tooth. I have also been to a Buddha tooth temple in Singapore. And a Buddha hair temple in Burma. People liked to take things from the Buddha!! This temple was built in 1595, but large parts rebuilt after the bomb. Again a rather pricy 1,000rp (£5) to get in. You have to take your shoes off - the floor is burning hot! Up the entrance stairs and the ceiling of the entrance hall is covered in lovely colourful paintings. The first corridor is also ...
