The Next day I hired a tuktuk and the driver brought me to temples, a waterfall nearby and some attractions in town and then I decided to go to another local market before heading to Ella.

For the Sunday local market I think it is quite similar to those in Myanmar except the produce looks more fresh, colourful and people are interactive. All of them are curious about why do I go there alone.

I walked all the way from City Center back to Lanka Hostel. And I was attracted by the loud music opposite our hostel. I heard people singing happily. So I decided to go there and have a look. And they were having a big party there. When I approached them, they immediately ask me to dance together and I don’t seem like a foreign stranger to them. Then I started to take pictures with them one by one, families and kids. It made my day.
