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 :(

That walk of shame...
...even though I was laughing, I really did feel your pain :) It's interesting reading about that first glimpse and impression of a country - high levels of travel excitement no doubt. Looking forward to the rest of your adventure in Sri Lanka

We did find it funny but it was embarrassing! Sri Lanka is so different to anywhere I've been before so it's all so new!

You are my hero
I'd love to visit these ice hotels! There is something really invigorating about being cozy and frozen at the same time. I'm sorry you didn't see the Northern Lights but it shouldn't take away from your overall experience. Come to Canada next time and you'll see them for sure! Skol!

Thank you
Yes, I need to see more of Canada - so far I've seen Toronto, Niagara Falls and Brantford and it loft me wanting to see more!

Thanks for the details...
I've wondered how one gets ready for bed and then sleeps when the room is below zero. And sorry about your missing the northern lights. Maybe next year in Norway.

Glad to advise!
I hope my story of the lady making yellow snow in the hotel wasn't too off-putting, I'm presuming that this is highly unusual! Other guests were telling me the next day that a tour had visited the icebar that night and were rather drunk, but were not actual guests. Anyway, getting a good night's sleep wasn't hard although one night is enough!

Rained on...
There's a spring rain storm raging outside here in Southern Australia, so reading your rainy blog was quite apt :) Despite the rain, everything sounds so fabulous...except maybe the gagaku thing. I'm always nervous about going to see traditional music events when we travel for exactly the reason you so neatly articulated - 'it's an affront to the ears' :D
