I discovered the delights of Sri Lanka breakfast with a tasty colakanda and white curry with roties… Pledge 3 cuisine is to be praised!
Then we hit the road to HABARANA with a rather heavy post-Christmas traffic and rather bumpy roads, but also colorful trucks and occasional flying peacocks (peafowls actually)…..between my beloved rice paddies;-)
Checked in at the Green Paradise resort and Spa…. Not my type of hotel although I admit it is quite comfortable.. Z
Then we arrived to Polonaruwa ancient site. Luckily it was raining and tourists stayed indoors so Sri Lankas and only a handful of crazy tourists such as myself were able to enjoy these remains of a sacred site used around the 11th century
And the evening came while we were visiting the stupa site …. Having the site for Pradeep, my guide and myself was a treat !
And under a terribly heavy rain we came back meeting occasional adorned trucks… And wild elephants!
