A 7 hours bus journey from Jaffna to Kandy. The geography changed from humid plains to cool sight of mountains along the roads. The crowd shifted from saree wearing women to sarong and skirts. Got down at at Tooth Relic Temple stop. This place took my breath away. A huge lake surrounded by hills, monasteries and hotels. I booked a cab through pick me app (similar to Ola/Uber) to my hostel. Accommodations are very cheap that you end up getting a bunk bedded room for LKR 1200 (INR 600) along with food and a decent hotel room for LKR 2400.1. Kandy Lake - A peaceful walk around the lake with well lit enormous Buddha statue on the hills is such a sight at dawn. The chanting from the temple echoes around calming a stressed out soul.However, the scene in the morning is different. It is very busy and traffic peaks around 7am. That's when the school begins.Fact: Srilankan Govt. provides free education till 12th and free medical facility to all its citizens. All school uniforms are white. There are Tamil medium schools too.
