CRAZY M.F. bus ride from Dikwella to Hikkaduwa along the south-western coast. The driver rode the horn and the brakes the entire way passing busses and tuktuks at death defying speeds. Even got pulled over by the Sri Lankan HP. We made it to Hikkaduwa! Can't complain if it cost only $2 for a 2 hour ride...
I took a foul ball to my knee cap for this shot.
Maybe time for a new dog when we get home?
Who IS this kid? Maybe my new guru. Dusk at Hikkaduwa.
How I wish I read Sinhalese. These figures were in a darkened hallway at Wewrukannala Buduraja Mahaviharava in Dikwella. From what I understood from what was told to me in broken English, these depict the demons in the afterlife inflicting punishments for various sins committed in life. I need to know how to avoid the two-man saw.
Another day, another Big Buddha. This one a towering 160 feet above Dikwella. Wewrukannala Buduraja Mahaviharaya.
A lot going on in this oceanside field: cricket game, kid flying kite, cow grazing.
Caught this from the back of a tuktuk speeding by. Liking my camera.
