Anuradhapura

2014 February, The Long Trip - Sri Lanka

We rented a car and started our journey together. If you want to rent a car in Sri Lanka, firstly, you need to apply for a special driving licence. It will take a few minutes and you are free to go.
The first stop was in Anuradhapura were monkeys walked almost everywhere. Bicycles were the best option to see all temples spread around the town. Our bicycles were far from new but still it was good fun to have a ride around. In one of the temples the local family gave us a lotus flower then we did as they did - we gave the flower to one of the buddha asking for.... We also saw Jatavana, the biggest stupa in the world made out of brick.  As we couldn't find a ticket office we saw the place for free. On our way back I saw one but it was already closed.
