    Life in my town and neighbourhood


    Just 5 to 10 minutes drive to the Kandy city is where I live.  from town you drive into a quiet and secluded residential neighbourhood, with two supermarkets.  One has to drive thro a long tunnel to come out into the open sun to the first supermarket in the neighbourhood, very popular among area people living there, and which is always full , they have a Pharmacy, restaurant and bakery.  Closer and beyond the tunnel you get a nice spot for bathing, this is used mostly by villagers.  I also buy my newspapers from the close by newstand, round about the city 's area you get a lot of hotels, and guest houses, where a lot of tourists like to come, becos of the quiet and nature like place.

    This is my town area and neighbourhood.. Its a nice and quiet place for a visit and holiday, where you can have daily walks and treks, see nature, and the rural surroundings of Kandy, town and the Anniwatte neighbourhood.  Plenty of guest houses and hotels to stay in too.



      These places will be full soon for the Perahera season which starts on Tuesday 10th August, when the parade is due to start.
