Colombo to Sigiriya - 29 April 2018

April 29, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Depart hotel at 8am for city bus tour - tour guide Dudley Fernando gave us a quick overview of the current political climate - quite toxic and very corrupt - treasury coffers have been emptied by current PM.

Just like any city street in this part of the world!  Then off to enjoy a drive in the country tussling with tuk tuks, two wheelers and public transport buses, not to mention crazy mad Sri Lankan drivers - lane discipline is optional and don't move over for overtaking traffic if avoidable. Watch out for elephants on the road.

Food stops - pineapples, fresh and sweet and roasted cashews - en route to Pinniwala Elephant Sanctuary where orphaned and injured elephants are cared for.

 

Lunch was served,well partaken with a funny amber liquid with bubbles and smelling very hoppy and leaving us very happy......

More driving (very good driver!!) to our overnight (3 nights) at Jetwing Vil Uyana
