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.
There are murals everywhere. Just not very good ones! They're well painted but the overall effect is just bad 6th Form artistic types. When they were going through a Sisters of Mercy phase.
But, I have to agree with the guidebooks that it is worth wandering up the hill for a drink but not, IMHO to stay there.
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.
