The Lanka Escapade

March 7, 2012

Blogging from phone so this will be short. I am currently in Sigiriya in Sri Lanka right now, a province 4 hours away from the capital, Colombo. We paid LKR10300 for the airport transfer from the tourist kiosk at the airport which is around USD90, the same rate I saw from the advices of previous tourists who’ve gone here.

Well, the 4-hr drive was a scenic one, not that I saw much of it as I was asleep for 3 hours and 30 minutes. ☺ One thing i noticed though, Sri Lankans are crazy drivers. If they are not overtaking the vehicle in front of them, then they would be driving in the middle of the road and will not swerve back to the right lane unless there’s about a hairstrand amount of distance with the vehicle coming from the opposite direction. All these are happening while our driver is joyfully having a phone conversation.

Anyhow, we’re staying at Jetwing Vil Uyana – fantastic! The food is superb as well. This will be my bed for 2 days:
