Arrival

Landing at Colombo international Airport at 7:40am with little sleep in my system the hot air reawakened me to the foreign and intense land we had just arrived in. We spent ten days in total on the island nation of Sri Lanka. Four of the days were spent in the mountains of Kandy and the other five on the coast down in Unawatuna. In the next few post I will share some of my images from that trip. The first group is landing and leaving the capital, Colombo, on the train for the cultural capital, Kandy. The following posts will show Kandy and Unawatuna.

After a 45min tuk tuk ride from the airport to Colombo Fort Train Station, a three hour train ride from Colombo to Kandy, an hour or two of wandering around trying to find suitable guest houses we finally napped under a baby pink moth bitten misquote net.
