Another early start, this time to visit the ancient rock fortress at Sigiriya. Except for the views (which are great if the weather cooperates), I always found this sight very overrated. I did see a giant squirrel and that was fun.
The spice gardens on the other hand are great fun. A guide shows you how some of our common spices (like pepper, cinnamon, cloves, ginger etc) grow and are treated. On the way we also stopped at a wholesale vegetable market - a photographers paradise :-)
Now we are in Kandy, a temple city in the centre of the Sri Lanka. It’s been raining more or less all day and the forecasts look bleak for tomorrow as well when we will travel to the tea plantations up in the Highlands.
