Some More Kandy for your Sweet Tooth

Kandy, Sri Lanka

The title of this post is a brilliant pun...because Kandy has one of the famous "temples of the tooth."  Get it?  You can tell me how brilliant I am later.  Anyway, my friends and I visited the temple, and since they're beautiful and bronzed and European, and I am scruffy and have been traveling through Asia for a while, I got waved in for free while they got charged full admission.  I was quite pleased with this, even though I should have been offended, since I had taken a proper shower that morning.  And my hotel was swankier than theirs!  Oh, well.

That same afternoon, I went to visit the Royal Palace Park.  On my way there, I saw the most pious looking monkey in all existence.  Seriously, scroll down.  She/he looks like a virgin model getting prepared for a Renaissance sculptor.  Pained, holy, full of purpose.  

While I was walking through the park (which was almost entirely vacant and SO lovely), a huge black snake went writhing across the path.  I ran after it, trying to get a photo, but alas, I was too late.  Later I wondered if it was a good idea to go chasing after wildlife.
