Sri Lanka

Sunrise on Adam's Peak

Queen Hotel in Kandy.

Karma Chameleon.

In the Big Rock Kandy Mountains, there's a land that's fair and bright...

Sigiriya Sigiriya Sigiriya. Try saying that three times correctly - or even once... all trip.

Many working oliphants in these parts.

Amazing six hour train ride through the hills and tea estates.

Village station.

Adam's Peak, first day of the pilgrimage season - December 31st, 2009.

This pic has it all.

Rock Temple. Many Buddhas inside.

The colonialists considered squatting a mark of being uncivilized.
However, I see it as a mark of superiority -
while I squat with ease, most westerners cannot.
Also, it is very relaxing.

Below you'll note that I am in fact presenting a mocking
demonstration of the "tippy toe" squat.
