A train trip from Colombo to Kandy

On a recent visit to Sri Lanka,  Annie and I decided to catch the little train from Colombo up into the mountainous region of Kandy.

Leaving the hot and humid plains that surround the capital Colombo the line climbs quite steeply and quickly into the lush tea growing region in the centre of Sri Lanka, chugging along through the little settlements strung along the line.

Kandy  is the second-largest city of the island and well worth a visit.
