Coming down from Kandy, I finally got off the insane roads (they make Chinese roads seem modern, huge and tame: there are no divided highways in this country, so far as I can tell: NONE…in fact, the biggest roads you’ll find aren’t up the standards of a halfway decent two-lane county highway in any part of the US, but then what am I doing, trying to encourage more folks to take the roads and start using up more gas!) and into a train down from the hill country back to Colombo. Here are some views from this truly wonderful 3-hour train ride: terraced rice fields that made me feel I was back in Guangxi, beautiful hills hidden behind the clouds, and guys cleaning up by the side of the tracks from whatever track or field work they’d been doing.
