On the 27th we left in the van from Sigiriya to the town of Kandy, full of high expectations. The drive should have taken 2.5 hours, but ended up taking 5, due in no small part to a large traffic jam once we reached Kandy, and our driver taking an “alternative” turn off at one point. Luckily Peter and Albert were able to help with the navigation.

Kandy is a quite dirty and busy town. It rained a lot while we were there. We had 2 nights, that is one full day (the 28th) in Kandy. I don’t really think you need more.

We saw a temple which houses Buddha’s tooth.

On the 29th we left on the train from Kandy to Ella. Supposedly one of the most spectacular train trips in the world. Well, you’ll never guess what we experienced… wait for the next exciting instalment.
