Day 18 – Ritigala….last day :-((

More ancient ruins famous for its herbal medicines and meditation.

This site belongs to the late Anuradhapura period from 377 BC to 1017 AD. Hard to comprehend the age of my surroundings!

Ancient stone for grinding herbs.

Taking it all in, surrounded by giant trees and rocks.

2 hours spent wandering through this tranquil and very peaceful place apart from the monkeys (munching on tumeric)!!!

The trees (don’t know their names) are magnificent, age, size and complexity…..just wonderful!!!

Time for lunch and another great curry and local beer before heading back to the hotel to pack…..

Last sunset and a sad farewell to this magical country with its beautiful smiley people, fresh fruit and countryside teeming with wildlife.
Bye for now Sri Lanka…love Emma xxxxx
