Sriram's Exotic Jaunts !
Sri Lanka

Srilanka is a beutiful little country. We went there much to the chagrin of our family and friends. We however stuck to areas considered relatively safer - Colombo, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya.

Colombo is a shoppers' paradise and the bargains you get there are just incredible! You can walk away with the nest of labels for a fraction of what it would cost anywhere in the Western world; even cheaper than what we pay for in India.

Kandy is a beautiful hill station and a visit to the temple of tooth relic is a must see. Strangely we found it difficult to find decent vegetarian and Indian food in Srilanka..you gotta watch out if you are a veggie !

If Nuwara Eliya is heaven, then hotel Tea Factory, a converted hotel on top of the hills is paradise ! The view from there are spectacular and the hospitality is excellent. Every night they have a show at the restaurant where waiters wear scary costumes and the lights are dimmed - exciting stuff with song & dance in all that !

After climbing the hills it was time to come down and relax at - where else - but the beach ? The waters are a bit choppy and one has to be careful - but hey, lazing around in a beach resort is so much fun - who cares if the waters are a bit choppy ?
