  • AnuradhapuraWe had pre-booked a train to Anuradhapura and after some initial confusion found the almost empty 'Expo' carriage.

  • Exploring the new town of AnuradhapuraSince we explored most of the ancient cities yesterday we decided today to have a walk into the new town and investigate the streets.

  • Taken to the ClinicsAnother clinic today, and this one was probably more organised and successful than Sunday’s.

  • Clinical ExecutionAnd what an exhausting clinic it was! The first clinic of a trip is always disorganised and this was no exception.

  • All is QuietCouldn’t get internet access either of the last two nights so here’s a triple entry, apologies. Happy New Year! Not much to report from today, but a bit of catching up to do from 2010 so that’s where I’ll start. After I Posted by sammyhez in Sam's 2011 Travels | Jan 1, 2011
