When you’re spending 2 hours hanging on to strap handles on the 7.00 am commuter train from Galle to Colombo in Sri Lanka, there are few opportunities to capture moments with the camera. Instead, the observations from every corner of that carriage are stored for future use in word form.
At Colombo Station we waited for the Kandy Express. I amused myself by taking photographs of young Chinese tourists taking selfies from every conceivable angle.
The 3 hour express train to Kandy was a different kettle of fish in that we had allocated seats for the ride.
After taking care of check-in, laundry and finances, we grabbed some food at one of the many bakeries in the town before heading down towards the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic via the lake.
The Temple precinct includes many buildings, all of which have detailed architectural interest. Today was a special day and many Sri Lankans arrived in procession to pay their respects at this most revered site.
