Sweet like Kandy

Comment 1 Standard

Sri Lanka is famous for two things, cricket and tea. With “Ouma” and “Oupa” in tow, we left Hikkaduwa for a short while and headed up North to see the tea plantations, stopping briefly in Kandy. Kandy is one of those places that you just can’t miss. It’s a mix of British stiff upper lip and Hindu Temples.

We were privileged enough to tour The Sacred Relic of the tooth temple, which houses the tooth of Buddha. As it was a full moon Sunday, the place was teaming with locals, all dressed in white with offerings to Buddha.

After that we bid Ouma and Oupa farewell and moved from our plush hotel into something more  within the budget.

One of the best things about travel is “choice”. We don’t have any set plans except out pre-booked flights and we take each day as it comes, moving from one place to the other as we see fit.  There was one place that I’ve really wanted to see since I was young and that’s the famous tea plantations of Sri Lanka.
