6th DAY

Aranuradhapura-Dambulla (cycling)

rain 24 °C

6th Day:9.12.2009

After breakfast we visit together with korean girl Cloi budistic temple again. We didnt decide to go inside, because we didnt want to put our shoes off. Later we didnt regreat, because Cloi went inside and camed back 3 minutes later and told us that is nothing special. Last night guide AĊĦoka told us, that inside of this temple there are 100 of elephants statues, but it was a lie. No sign of any elephants in there.I strongly recomend, that you dont hire any guides because all they explain is crap and all they want is your money.
Before we start cycling in direction Dambulla we had again rain shower. In inland we had many problems with weather and it was raining almost every day which made cycling harder. After shower we start pedaling. It was raining most of the day and I got cold. We arrived in Dambulla little before night and settled in Mahawasala hotel. Nice hotel for resonable price. We had flying bats in corridor infront our room, but after we switched lights on they disapeared. Later we got neigburs and we had a couple of drinks together. I laso tried very spicy local food.
We cycled 75 kilometers in about 4 hours.
