We were encouraged by several people to climb up the hill and have a beer at Helga's folly. It is a hotel cum bar high above Kandy. It's a short but steep climb up from the lake side but a nice walk. The eponymous Helga knew lots of famous people and the walls are covered in their pictures and, the whole place in general, with the endless crap that was collected.
The guidebooks very definitely say it's seen better days and it's a bit past its best but worth seeing as you won't find owt else like it.
True! It is one of the strangest places, I think, we have ever visited.
I thought it looked like a VIth Form Common room, when the Ho6 has said: 'Yes, of course you can decorate it so long as you do it all.' A bit gothic and just weird.
The cultural capital of Sri Lanka. We stayed a wee way out of the town up in the hills in a lovely little (well massive really) villa with our own cook, driver and infinity pool.
The grounds contained all manner of wildlife, including, as advertised by the owner, a deer which ran out 2 metres in front of me when I was taking a walk in the grounds and a frog that spent the day sleeping beside our pool
I have to say it was luxury at a bargain price, with stunning views across the valley.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
