Transport between Sigiriya and Kandy and Vegetable stalls
Look for prices in Vegetable stalls
If you are interested in what the individual vegetables cost, just look at this price tag 🙂
Coconuts can be used for many things
Next stop was at a family, where we got shown what one can use a coconut to – and it is not so little. You can practically use everything.
For example, a mixture of pressed coconut and coconut water is used as coconut milk (that we know of course from cooking, etc.)
The shell itself can be used for garden coverings, bowls and even jewelry etc.
The fibers can be used for ropes, string, blankets and mats. We saw how to twist the string (!) to make it thicker and thicker.
Finally, coconut whiskey can be made of meat. Unfortunately, we did not see that 🙁
The next stop was the visit to a spice plantation – Ranweli Spice Garden, where we were presented and told about all possible spices, as we know at home, but also some unknowns.
First we had a tour of the area where we could see the plants and we got explained and shown how the individual plants looks like and what they can be used for.
After that our local guide had reported about the various fruits, we “accidentally” got past a shop where you could buy spices, etc.
We only bought a single bag of spices and some Ceylon tea.
