Kandy, Sri Lanka

Kandy Lake
Kandy Lake

Kandy still retains many old colonial buildings. The balcony of this hotel is the best in Kandy.

The bustling town of Kandy.

Kandy turned out to be quite a disappointment. I'd expected it to be cool and filled with tea estates but it was hot and as for the latter, they were far away in the Hill Country.

Kandy town was uninspiring. Kandy Lake was unimpressive unless the presence of hundreds of crows can be considered remarkable.

The crows certainly make their presence felt in more ways than one. If you're unfortunate enough, you could be the recipient when they defecate en mass.

A visitor from Slovakia said,"It was like rain."

With all other birds out muscled and bullied, the crow is the undisputed king of the skies in Sri Lanka.

In many countries crows numbering in their thousands would be cause for alarm but in Sir Lanka they are tolerated.

Maybe my rant against the crows has something to do with my breakfast being snatched away by them! I had left my sandwich unattended for a minute in a coffee shop, and in a flash a crow had converted it to ITS breakfast.
