SRL Tag6 06

After the night yesterday at Kandy Esala Perahera Festival, we had a bit more sleep today. After a delicious breakfast, we started our journey to Sigiriya.

And the journey went on, chasing the sun…

We were very lucky to reach a local lake at the right time – sunset time – and a lot of locals in the water

Finally we reached Trincomalee late at night, due to the fact our driver had not very good eyes, we passed 2 police controls without stopping. But they were chasing us and we negotiated with the cops down to 3 EUR for not stopping at the police control, driving too fast and overtaking a truck, which was overtaking another car at the same time. Seems to be not a very expensive country 🙂
