Walking tour
Wow, I'm impressed with how much walking you did in that Colombo heat! Your description of Pettah is spot on, I think it was the most overwhelming place we experienced on the whole trip. I've really enjoyed your Sri Lankan blogs, thanks for sharing your adventures with us :)

Kathiresan Kovil Temple in the Pettah

TEmple
Hello Claire- I do not think that is a Sikh temple. It looks like a lot of gods from the Hindu religion- it is probably in the style of Hindu temples from south India. Samuel

Loving your blogs! I'm going in October. Can't wait. Will keep in mind dodgy tuk tuk and taxi drivers. The train travel looks interesting! I'm unfortunately familiar with the hole in the floor.

October
Have a wonderful time in October - have you got it all planned? If not and need a driver I totally recommend our driver, Thuminda Wettasinghe. I'll look forward to reading your blog and seeing how you get on. Apart from Colombo, the tuk-tuk drivers in Sri Lanka were fair and upfront, we had no trouble.

Epic road trip
Wow, he made it in the time promised! That must have been a once in a lifetime experience. Great stuff. Never under estimate a driver trying to provide for his family. The food sounds marvelous.

epic tuk-tuk
Yes, he certainly did not let us down - we would have paid him even if he hadn't made it on time because we totally did not expect him to!

Sri Lankan Safari
The wee hours of the morning is not the time you want to be arguing with these guys. I understand them wanting to make a living but they need to give it a rest at some point. Glad you got to see some wildlife and finally had a bit of sleep.

'Tear-arsing' :)
That's a very accurate description of what happens. We weren't very lucky with either leopards or elephants on our safari in Wilpattu National Park, but it was a nice drive nonetheless. So jealous that you saw a sloth bear! Your Sri Lanka blogs are making me really want to get back into posting the rest of our blogs from there... but bloody work has got in the way :(
