Winding roads through the mountainous heart of Sri Lanka brought us up into majestic scenery, and down through 18 hairpin curves. (known here as elbows)
Stopped for fresh fruit - local farm to table at its best. Refreshing stop to stretch our legs and enjoy a new taste experience of wood apple juice with milk.. tastes like a milk shake flavored with really good apple sauce.
One of the benefits of Layasing knowing every Methodist minister in Sri Lanka - is arranging to park on the church grounds in the city of Kandy where parking is at a premium.
Sunday Morning we were served breakfast at the mission house. A Sri Lankan specialty of milk rice with your choice of chili sauce, or sweetened with a coconut honey mixture (made from coconut syrup and coconut meat).
The Church grounds have room to grow pepper (shown green immature, plus ripened and dried) when ready, they climb bamboo poles to harvest the pepper berries. Also papaya, banana, and a fruit that when dry, the flesh becomes fluffy and is used as cotton to stuff pillows.
Our weekend literally winds down with a 6+ hour return trip to our home base in Moratuwa. Stay tuned for a report on our final week's adventure. Thank you cannot begin to express our appreciation for your love, prayers and support ~ Pat
