Sigiriya sits within the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka and contains 5 of the 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites that are located in the country. Sadly, we didn't get to visit any of them.
Other than checking on them off and on, there wasn't much we could do. And since we couldn't go far, we wound up taking a morning and afternoon walk, exploring the area around us.
This part of Sri Lanka is in the central dry zone. Temperatures do not usually go higher than about 90 degrees, so it was warm, but bearable.
Kandalama Lake is home to many waterfowl.
And these girls who watched us as we walked along.
Looking back at our hotel; it was designed by architect Geoffrey Bawa so that it would be unobtrusive. The hotel encompasses 50 acres of land that sits within 200 acres of conservational forest.
With the sun high in the sky, we decided it was time to head back for a bit of refreshment.
I collected rocks along the way so commenced to crochet while having a cold one.
Right now the temperature in Kuwait is 115 degrees.
I haven't walked since we got back.
Believe me, there's a BIG difference between 85 degrees and 115.
Hope things are cooler where you are.
Have a great day!
