On Saturday the third of February we went to Uda Walawe national park. We had to wake up at, hmm, about three in the morning. It was so much fun! Well not waking up at three, but everything else was. We got up close and personal with, well, I’ve lost count how many elephants!
We also saw water buffalo,
lots of different types of birds,
a couple of giant ants nest, some crocodiles, a frog, two turtles and a partridge in a pear tree. Okay maybe not that last one. But I did see a royal! No joke, really. We actually saw Prince Edward and Sophie! And Prince Edward waved to me! I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t actually recognise him at first, 😅 but I was happy to wave back. Anyways, after that I didn’t take many pictures. I just enjoyed the scenery and imagined a great story I could write. Our guide was great and saw all sorts of things I couldn’t, such as tiny fish in a puddle (I think he’s secretly part eagle). Oh ya, we saw some lizards too.
We also got temporarily stuck in the mud, which was interesting to say the least. All in all, it was pretty awesome.
