The Duran Duran video is more like a tourist video from Sri Lanka, including the South Beeches, Polonurawwa and Sigiriya (the main reason for coming to sri lanka).
So I awoke in my Lanka house, made breakfast by mum and then spent time trying to stop the monkeys raid my eggs on toast!!!
A short walk from the guest house is the lion rock, centuries old and dominating the sky line. So called the lion rock because the top was once sculpted into a lion and the jaws were the entrance to the princes chambers
Have way up the climb are also the stunning fresco's or paintings...I slipped the guards a bit of cash and also went to the restoration area to view some more, although shat myself walking on small beams clung onto the side of the rock a good 200m up.
On top of the rock i met two English girls (Chloe and eve) who recommended Unawatuna in the south. So I decided to make this my next stop. The views around were pretty damn good, jungle and the mountains of Kandy in the distance.
A few hours later I wondered back the house, again watched the large grey monkeys and chilled with Madu before catching a bus back to Kandy.
