Diagnostics: Street Food in Kandy, Sri Lanka

Kandy is a historical city about 2-2.5 hours east of the commercial capital and largest city of Colombo.  If you still maintain that Colombo is the political capital, oh no, that title now goes to Sri Jayawadenapura Kotte.  Anyhow, Kandy is known as home to the Temple of the Tooth, a sacred Buddhist relic, tea plantations and a pleasant botanical garden, which I’ll cover at a later time.

In January 2008 when I visited, no meals were served on the train.  No problem, that’s not necessarily standard practice, and there were plenty of options around both train stations.  Coming back to Colombo, I was in a bit of a rush, and bought a few grease-laden fried potato snacks, often packaged in local newspapers, but this time, mysteriously wrapped in someone’s health records.  Seems your kidneys are fine, Sanjeewa.  Just fine.
