Next Day
Why stay in Colombo? We want to see a country full of highlights so we catch local transport heading for the ancient city region; ruins wait to be explored. We will make a countrywide circuit, clockwise around Sri Lanka. Our first stop: the northern city of Anuradhapura (these ancient cities seem to carry an extra syllable in their names).
Ox cart pullers are paid by the hour, with hay.
Reasonable advice.
