Travel diary 2015. A short drive to the ancient ruins of Ritigala, once an vast religious complex of buildings and pathways now mostly taken over by jungle, just the tarmac ran out and the road turned to a sand track, Tharindu, our driver bangs on the brakes n shouts Tortoise! We fling open the doors and pile out, wow what a find ! A juvenile Star tortoise, a great start to the day.
