Traveler Megan McCormick heads beyond the southern tip of India and two of the most beautiful tropical locations on earth: Sri Lanka & the Maldive Islands. Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, has been an important trading port and commercial centre since the 1870s. It is here that Megan begins her trip, traveling around town on a bajajs and sampling some exotic foods. From Colombo, Megan sets our along the coast for Matara. On the way she sees toddy-tappers at work high in the coconut trees and stops off at Weligama, where the local industry is a peculiar type of fishing: stilt fishing. Megan wades out to the stilts embedded into the seabed and tries her hand with little success. Next day she reaches Matara and just outside the town is the temple of Wewurukannala, site of Sri Lanka's largest statue of Buddha. From Arugam Bay Megan hitches a ride to Ratnapura, which means åÕåÔÌ_Ì´City of Gems'. This is the town where miners come to sell their gems to the dealers åÕÌàÌ_å the most abundant being pink and blue sapphires and the occasional ruby. Megan goes down the nearby mine accompanied by a guide - it's a terrifying experience but they do find some topaz to reward their efforts. Megan then hires a car to drives up into the hills to visit the tea plantations. Also in hill country is Pinjnewala, home of the famous elephant orphanage. The parents of the orphan elephants have been poached for their ivory and Megan hears some incredible stories about the backgrounds of the animals that live here. Megan then visits Kandy at the time of Esala Perahera, the country's biggest festival where hundreds of elephants are dressed up in honour of Buddha's åÕåÔÌ_Ì´tooth relic: and paraded around the city for ten nights. The final leg of Megan's journey takes her to Male, the capital of the Maldive Islands. She finds a cheap package which includes accommodation and a safari boat, and ideal way to see the islands and do some spectacular diving. There's many different varieties of fish, including barracuda, fusiliers groupa and trumpet fish, as well as soft corals and lagodias. Megan ends her extraordinary journey on Dhangethi, a perfect island of tropical beauty.
