....we also rented a motorbike today, but got a late start and arrived in Sigiria at 11:30 a.m., already too hot to enjoy anything in the sun.
We paused to drink fresh lemon soda and ginger beer, and then decided to drive to Habarana and get an ayurvedic massage and visit the couple who runs Eagle's Wings, and return to Sigiria around 4 pm to visit the sites. It's good that everything is so close together in this 'cultural triangle' area :)
We didn't get to Anurandhapura, but I found Sigiria to be the most impressive cultural site we visited (see photos). My imagination ran wild with times when Sigiria was bustling with people and activity...it always fun to think about what things used to be like in the 5th century.
enjoy the photos!
