Catch the morning train! From our Colombo bound train, from the hill town of Ella, via Kandy. School kids pull over to allow our train to pass before heading back into the tracks. We did our share of track-walking, too. Sri Lankan trains (as trains in general), are arguably the finest way to move about and visually absorb the country. Cheap, too...you can travel across the country for a couple of dollars, and just down the line for as little as 6 cents!
