Sri Lanka

Sigiriya Rock

At times a gruelling climb up vertigo-inducing steps, and see-thru iron stairs. Well worth the climb for the view, but the cold drink at the bottom was probably the most desperately needed of the whole trip. Stayed in the nearby town of Dambulla (see next photos)

Cave Temples, Dambulla

Orphaned Elephants

Sri Lankan tuk-tuk, we took these for a 4 hour journey one day - about the arse-survival limit for the vehicles, we felt!

Hotel room, Unawatuna. At less than £10 a night, this was outstanding value - complete with breakfast served on the private balcony.
