Beautiful Botanical Gardens

Friday 19/02/16

After a decent nights sleep we woke to blue skies and sunshine. We decided to visit the botanical gardens after a delicious breakfast of freshly baked bread, home made jams (coconut and mango), curd muesli, pineapple, watermelon, papaya, muffin, egg, tomato, cue, pineapple juice and coffee!

We spent around three hours wandering through the gardens and saw some lovely specimens not to mention the fruit bats that had done a fly past the night before! We also made a new friend in Akash, a young Tamil boy studying in Kandy.

On the way back we stopped at a food outlet run by local women which offers all sorts of local bites for silly money. Everything was labelled in Sinhalese but all of it was vegetarian so we simply pointed at each item we fancied and they bagged it up for us. We had yet another good dinner for less than the price of a packet of mints back home!
