Subject: Sri Lanka
Hello Ruth,

Don't miss this chance to go to Sri Lanka! It's a wonderful country with wonderful people.

The most interesting places are Colombo, Anuradhapura (where is located the sacred Bo tree), Polonnaruwa (wonderful archeologial sites), Sigirya (incredible!), Kandy (don't miss the evening ceremony at the Dalada Maligawa, where the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddah is enshrined), Dambulla (wonderful temple inside a cave), Nuwara Elya (here some old English mansions are now hotels, rich of colonial atmosphere!).

Anyway, apart the historical places, just traveling along the country is an incredible experience. You'll see the most luxury and colourful vegetation that you could imagine.

Between July and August, in Kandy takes place the Esala Perehera festival. It's one of the most spectacular festivals of Asia. In case you're in Sri Lanka during the festival, don't miss it.

Ciao, Stefano Genova - Italy
