A Holiday - Well.. sort of

Haven't posted for some time. Which means there was a longer delay than usual. Since the Full moon poyaday was on friday( 19th August) us Sri Lankans had a long holiday. So I went to Kandy to watch the famous Dalada ( Sacred Tooth) Perahera. I went with my Mother & Sister. We watched it on Wednesday. The final Perehera & the longest which is the largest was on Friday. But there are so many thousands of people to watch it on the final day we decided to watch it on Wednesday. Even then there were around 20 thousand people to watch it.

It was so long it took 3 hours to finish. There were 91 elephants & quite a few of them were tuskers. It was a beautiful sight & an unforgettable one too.
