Photographer's Note

Riding the slow trains is one of the many pleasures of travelling in Sri Lanka.


This picture was taken on that famous hill country train from Haputale to Ella, choogling through tea planations and greenery. This particular stretch of rails is pretty popular with tourists, and rightly so.


Ella is a small village up in the hill country. It's in a very beautiful area with great walks in the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of guesthouses and it's also one of the best places in the country for food.

Haputale is another hill country town. Though there are some excellent hotels and guesthouses, it is less touristy than Ella, a bit rougher as well.


so many train song titles to pick from...train kept a rollin'...?
