The small, densely-forested Udawattakele Sanctuary is home to a huge variety of plants and animals, and offers a number of long, secluded paths for exploration. During the morning we spent there, we felt completely alone, almost frighteningly so. Amazing, considering the fact that Uduwattakele is basically in the middle of Kandy.
After a morning marked by clouds and humidity, it finally started to rain yesterday afternoon. We didn't mind much. A nice shower provides a welcome breath of fresh air here in Kandy, and we were safe under the roof of our porch. But creatures who live out in the open don't much appreciate the rain. They're forced to seek shelter, and our veranda seems to be an irresistible refuge. It's monkey time!
