Photos from The Railway trip to Kandy

So, After the few weeks silence due to the injuries after the reckless stunt i made on the Honda, im back. Thanks to all the folks who were in touch.

I had the privilege of joining a Train / Railway trip to Kandy from Negombo on a Hot Sunday morning with an interesting family in Negombo. It was an interesting trip, as railways and trains are not the usual mode of transportation we use in our daily traveling routines. We started our journey early morning on a Train (Second Class Carriage) from negombo and reached Peradeniya in 3 hours time. On our way, I tested out the Sports mode of my Nokia N73 Camera and also i did not forget to capture some Photos from the Peradeniya Botanical gardens as well, where we spent the Noon. Tunnels, Signal Posts, and the stuning sceneries spiced up the journey.

The return trip was not the best as we were exhausted and we had to come in a Third Class Carriage. However the entire journey was an unforgettable event, and it is sad to say that due to the lack of maintenance and the corrupted railway authorities, this might be the last trip we will ever remember as a train trip in the distant future.
