Taking a walk in Sri Lanka

Kandy railway station. [On our way from Kandy to Colombo the engine broke down. The authorities then asked us to move to another train. Some time later a rescue train pulled up on the side. There was no platform. We jumped with our bags into the first available open door of the new train. It started moving about 15 seconds after the last fellow made his leap of faith between the tracks. It was quite like in the movies, only that it was no stunt.]   


Hikkaduwa beach, south Sri Lanka.

  1. Srilanka has always been a place which is more of a troubled part of earth to me, my love towards the Tamils living there and the internal issues has left my wishlist away from Srilanka for all these years. After seeing your pics I am truly intrigued and may be sometime want to visit.
