Dear Sri,

Morningside always had been great place to be, eventhough I hv been there several times but had never stayed in the bunglow....

Did you notice the short door entrance's at Maduwanwela walauwa, Maduwanwala Mohottala was a short person and he was always happy to see the people who comes to meet him had to bend and come through the door. The other secret was that he was womenizer and he had a "anthahpura" in that walauwa and the ladies who is having their menstruation period has to be in the special room created( you had captured it through your lence) for them so that its easy for him to select a clean lady. he had given orders to all the villegers to send their virgin daughter to his walauwa otherwise he will make their life terrible. these are all hidden fact of Maduwanwela mohottala.

Cheers!!!

Hi Tony

Thanks for the insight.... Even Leonard Wolf, author of the Village in the Jungle has been a great friend of him and he's written in his memoirs that when he was about to leave for England, Maduwanwela Disawa had given him a parcel of gems (about 8 of them).

He then went to England and had given his book and one of the tiny blue sapphires to the editor of a big newspaper.... He'd said that that blue sapphire brought him luck and the book became an all-time-success....

Yeah, I noticed the short door entrance... Interesting to see that he had used those European plates broken and used as tiles... Did you see Queen Victoria's face is on the floor... he'd apparently been anti-british...

Cheers

Hi Ashan

Nope, coz we chose to visit Maduwanwela and then go to Embilipitiya.... Hathmale falls is near Deniyaya right?

There was this Maduwanwela Doovilli falls about 2km from the Walawwa, but we didn't have enough time coz we travel by public transport...

Hi Sachintha...

If it's a trail bike, should pose no problem, but you have to take the short cut (the second route) which is about 5km down from Suriyakanda town.
I guess another bike should also be all right as it's not raining heavily these days... but might be really difficult when you have to carry stuff....

Hey Hari,

yeah, it certainly is.... you can't hear anything except birds, winds, animals.... oh there's an international airline route right above, so once in a while a plane or two can be seen and heard....
You are in a world of your own...

cheers
