SRI LANKA - Amanwella resort


The lake of Giritale was built in the 7th Century as part of a regional irrigation plan. The area is extremely beautiful and peaceful and allows easy access to the ancient city of Polonnaruwa and the elephant filled Minneriya National Park.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
