a place to showcase

The road to Habarana

A bit damp from that tremendous cloudburst at Dambulla, we got back into our van and continued on our way to the base camp from where all exploratory expeditions in the Cultural Triangle head out.
The landscape had flattened out considerably and I noticed that these parts weren’t as lush and green as the ones we left behind that morning. Fewer people too.

    A little less lush for a little fewer people – not an entirely bad trade, I say. 🙂

    • For an island, it was surprising to see such large swathes of sparsely populated land! Very interesting to note the changes as we zigzagged across 🙂

  4. Completely agree with Sid. I will always make such a trade, as I am a hermit and people subtract from the lushness anyway 😉
    Here. Better pass Graham some lettuce for that duck ~*~ 🙂

  5. Love the sequence of pics as others above…………… you’ve got a surreal conversation going about ducks and lettuce though. 🙂

    • Thank you Alan 🙂 The duck and lettuce conversation can be traced back to my duck posts on the other blog, haha.
