Sigiriya from Below

I was taking a trip from Colombo to Sigiriya by train, and this was the afternoon that I finally reached what I had wanted to see for so long. It was one of those moments where a calm comes over you because you know that your journey has hit a milestone and all your hard work has payed off. Plus, the rock is stunning for any amount of effort.
