Day 3, in the afternoon. By the riverside in Kandy. Two pink things 🙂
(this post is dedicated to Harsha, who loves all things hibiscus)

After a 6 hour, winding drive up hilly terrain, we finally reach Nuwara Eliya, once called Little England. Huz had been pretty car sick, so it is a relief to get out. It is cold here, compared to Colombo, and a waiter (at The Grand, where we are staying) brings us hot cinnamon tea, to be sipped through pieces of jaggery. It is deliciously warming.
We don light hoodies and set off for an exploratory walk around the hotel.
have i ever seen poinsettia before? not sure.
morning gloryish…..love the vivid bluey-purpley color
the trees were huge!
Amu clicked this one 🙂 The wind whips my hair around. Behind me is The Grand hotel, smacking of a colonial past. The bay window on the top left is ours!

…it would be this one.
I just have to slow down, or stop altogether and stare, if I chance upon an Amaltas on my jaunts around the city.
If this isn’t magic…what is?
