Colombo, Sri Lanka overview

Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka means "Resplendent Land," an apt description for this beautiful island. Sri Lanka lies fifty-five miles north of the equator, just off the southern tip of India. With its unique beauty, warm climate and near-perfect beaches, Sri Lanka is one of Asia's most adored destinations. Since the sixteenth century, the Portuguese, Dutch and British have all left their architectural and cultural marks in Sri Lanka's capital of Colombo. Yet despite its colonial architecture, Sri Lanka has always remained Oriental in spirit, with colorful bazaars, dancing elephants, graceful women in saris, and many Buddhist shrines and temples.

What a difference, much cleaner than the Indian ports of call. Visited a tea plantation, saw the tea pickers and saw how the tea was processed in the factory.

Our excursion was private and we went out to the Pinwala Elephant Preserve and had a blast. Even got to feed the elephants. They would walk right up to you if you had fruit in your hands. Last trip we did Colombo, so we want to get out of town and worth it.

We have been here before so we took the 9-hour Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage tour. It was a long ride out here & back to the ship. You can take a train or a motor Coach to get here. What fun to have the elephants come right over to us searching our pockets and bags for food. It was fun watching the elephants playing & bathing themselves and we were invited to feed them bottles of milk later. We enjoyed a buffet lunch riverside.
