Arrived Friday in Ella by train, the journey was fantastic. The scenery from the train was something else. We worked our way high into tree tea plantations where we saw workers busily toiling,in the sun. The workers earn a pittance with the women getting 450 rupees a day and the men 600 rupees. So in effect £2.25 for women and £3.00 for men, so think on everybody,!

Today Wew climbed little Adams peak, it is a small hill that looks over Ella. Hard work in a very hot morning sun so a cool beer was a small reward after the climb.

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and every new town or province has a brand new experience. Oh and the foods is always good, something that is always high on my list.

Tomorrow we travel to Marrisa via the rock pools at the large waterfalls.
