One Day In Kandy

IMG_3949

I should have extended my stay in Kandy. One day was not enough to explore this picturesque city, which is famous for its tea gardens and the Temple of the Tooth Relic.

IMG_3883

IMG_3887

There are many amazing places which I missed. But, I still got to meet some very interesting people, relish Kandy’s delicious food and visit its colorful market. I stayed in a very comfortable hostel and the street food was finger-lickin good.

https://deepakmagazine.com/2017/07/21/how-i-stayed-in-sri-lanka/

The major part of my one-day stay in the city was spent exploring Kandy’s Central Market, where one can find from fruit to wine. It was a bit crowded, but that’s not a problem if you are a Delhitie.

I visited the Temple of the Tooth Relic and soaked up the beauty of the Kandy Lake, which is also known as Kiri Muhuda or the Sea of Milk. This artificial lake is situated in the heart of the city.

In the end, a bar was needed to unwind after a hectic but very beautiful day. I approached a gentleman to find me a good place and he told me to follow him. After a five minute-walk, we were standing outside a restaurant-cum bar. The gentleman smiled at me and said: “Welcome to my bar.” “You own this,” I asked with surprise. “O yes,” he replied.

IMG_20170429_191425

I entered the bar, and the first thing I noticed was its rustic decoration. Very artistic and well-maintained. I hit the bar a little too early and so was the only guest.
I ordered a beer and few snacks, and my perfect evening came to a blissful end.

The card is pretty useful for those who use camera’s burst-mode frequently.  The card is managed by the Power Core™ Controller. I used this card on my Canon 750D and it worked well. Without much worry, one can shoot for longer period of time, thanks to the card’s storage capacity.
