Well, due to the fact that in Sri Lanka nearly everyday happened something new, interesting, incredible, it was really hard for me to follow up all my experiences in this blog. I was really happy to finish my personal diary to the end of my travels by my own. As there are just two places missing namely Anuradhapura and Kitulgala I think I'll just skip them. Anuradhapura was supposed to be my basis for going to a national park. But it was closed, or there were no animals, or it was too dangerous...whatsoever reason there was: I didn't go there, and as to the fact that we would return here anyway one month later with the whole group I decided just to have a quick look at the tanks and talk to some people.
In Kitulgala I went whitewater-rafting joining a group of "elephant" employees. That was great fun and I thank you guys for taking me with you!!! In Kitulgala I lived in an Ecolodge which was really amazing! I loved the feeling of living in a kind of jungle hut just made up of some bamboo trunks. It was a two-floor apartment, with a bathroom downstairs. All made up of natural materials, stone and wood. I felt like living centuries behind in the Cambodian jungle.
Saying this I will skip the stay in Kandy where we were staying for nearly one month giving sports education at the university of Peradenya.
Now I arrived in Madeira and wanna give you more impressions about my second part of traveling.
Today's lesson: You can't have it all.
