I chose this holiday partly from nostalgia having had three years living in Sri Lanka way back from 1954 -57. The beauty of the scenery - mountains, lush green vegitation, lovely looking and friendly people were unchanged; the one big difference (as everywhere, I suppose) was the traffic. It was superb - and great fun too. The highlights for me? Wow! So many! Probably Sigirya especially, but also the mountains and panoramic views - the fun bits like white-water rafting and elephant ride, those lovely kids in the jungle village school. . . . .
