Friday, Spent All Day Exploring Kandy, Sri Lanka

Kandy, Sri Lanka

In the morning, walked over to the Udawatta Kele Sanctuary and hiked around in the woods. There were lots of macaques at the entrance but only saw a little deer (barking deer?) after that.

There were nice views of the city and the big Buddha on the hilltop at Bahirawakanda Temple.

I had the park to myself from about 09:00 to 10:00 then I started running into other people including a huge group of schoolgirls in uniform.

After the park, I walked up the hill to the Bahirawakanda Temple. It was okay but the big white Buddha is best viewed from a distance.

For lunch I went to the Muslim Hotel Restaurant and had a delicious Basmathi with fried chicken. That's just a big plate of rice with a few vegetables and a boiled egg mixed in .

I felt like they were trying to get rid of me and then the waiter said that they were closing for prayers since it was Friday at 13:00. They open again at 16:00.

In the afternoon I went to find where the buses to Dambulla and Sigiriya leave from.

For dinner I had another Basmathi at the Devon Restaurant because that was all that they had that I recognized.
