Sri Lanka: Train Rides

Near the end of our trip, we bought (very cheap) first class tickets on a train that traveled about 4 hours across the country.  Our tour guide recommended the trip because of the beauty that we would pass through, and it was a brilliant idea!

 Before we left, we took a walk down the train tracks to a pretty bridge.

While on the train, we meandered through tea plantations, mountains, valleys, fields, and villages with precious children eager to wave at us.  A new friendship and a bit of sweet-talking by yours truly even got us into the engine car!  Unfortunately, I was not allowed to drive, despite my multiple requests 🙂
