When we got off the train station we decided to walk and not take the tuktuks, after all, the five of us had the lightest luggage. Soon we were walking over a kilometer and 15 minutes trying to navigate the maze of downtown Kandy on a busy Monday morning. Finally we were able to check in and got a pleasant surprise from what we expected of our hotel - not to mention it had a great restaurant too!

The designated meetup place was Queen's Hotel, also our second location for our Beatles' photo shoot. That afternoon was Jon's rest and recovery day, while it was off to Pinnawala [Pinnawala-travel-guide-591633] (or so we thought) for an encounter with the elephants.
