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.
During our way from Kandy to Trincomalee, we passed Sigiriya, you’ll find some pics below.
This is a temple very close to Sigiriya, entry free and pretty nice view
And here it is, the famous rock Sigiriya
They charge you 30 USD per person to walk up to the top.
Some monkeys at the street waiting for people’s rubbish
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 🙂
