Giant trees, weird flowers, spiky barks and overall funky plant life: yep, we’re in Kandy’s botanical garden.
The funny thing is that while for us Westerners the visit has a bit of a Magical Mystery Tour feel -“don’t sit on that tree! Who knows what might happen?- for locals it seemed to be the number one romantic stroll.
I guess that’s what tropical love stories are made of. It kinda beats the old ice-skating date.
