I had meant to mention a few of the things that I saw in Kandy, but as time goes by, so does my recollection, except for one thing or should I say furry things? That would be monkeys!
Kandy is famous for its elephant orphanage and Temple of the Tooth as mentioned earlier, but one thing they have that Colombo doesn't is monkeys. There are two types and honestly couldn't tell you much about them, except they do seem to leave you alone. I didn't try feeding them.
I also saw very colorful birds and a about a 1 1/2 foot water monitor (Lizard) at the lake,
I was approached by one tout while walking around the lake, but he knew that I knew what he was up to (Try to talk me into a tour etc) and turned right around and left me alone.
On our way back from Kandy we saw a huge elephant being walked down the main road (Actually called The Kandy Road) on its way to Colombo for a festival at the end of the month.
