I understand im not necessarily pretty but no need to call me out and embarrass me in public.
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

Also that road looks like the width of the road on the back side of West Maui. Same procedure: small turnoffs and traffic needs to back up to let others pass (those going down hill always have the right of way if on a hill). Thanks again for sharing!
there wasn't a portion that was straight for more then 100ft.

What I'd a doona and why has it changed your life?

Lol'd at the rules of the road hierarchy and the act like a chicken parts.

Great pics. What camera?

Doona is a car seat/stroller transformer combo that makes air and car travel with a infant ridiculously easier.

Just picked up the A6000 a couple weeks ago.

that hotel looks really nice (ok, not the room carpet, but the other features of the hotel).
It was quite a unique experience. I walked into the room and spent 10 minutes looking for the A.C controls which I didn't find. I couldn't fathom that a hotel known among the locals as the "best hotel in Ceylon" and which charges more then 5 times what an Airbnb with a butler would cost wouldn't have an A.C.
But lo and behold they didn't, I guess they couldn't incorporate it into the rooms without it being an eyesore.
At the end of the day it wasn't really necessary as the very high altitude kept it cool and nothing like the deathly hot and humid weather of the rest of the country. The only extremely annoying aspect was that I opened the balcony door for the fresh breeze and a family a flies came in and wouldn't leave, I woke up my first morning there with a fly constantly doing passes on my ear, I wanted to kill someone.
