Kandy, the second largest city in Sri Lanka with the traffic jams to prove it. It took us twenty minutes to travel half a mile Monday morning. Still, the city is charming and lovely and very interesting. Built on hills, most of the roads go up and down, which gives us travelers stunning views of the city.
The view from the big, hilltop Buddha.
We enjoyed a two-hour cultural show that was both colorful and lively, highlighting the music, dance, and costumes of the area.
And the show ended with fire walking.
After the show, we visited the palace that has been converted into a Buddhist temple.
The hall of Buddhas.
While wandering back to the hotel, we spotted a guy with a cobra.
If you look closely, you can see the big Buddha on the top of the highest peak.
Checking out of the hotel. I love this pic of me.
