  • Public Transport in Sri Lanka – Travelling to projects with SLV.Global

    Most projects are reached by bus and though we try to ensure that no-one has to commute for longer than 1hr sometimes traffic can get the better of us. The busses are cramped, crowded and comfy all at once depending on whether or not you get a seat. Be mindful of your possessions and try to get used to the lack of personal space. SLV.Global provides psychology students and graduates the opportunity to gain valuable psychology work experience in Sri Lanka, India and Bali, Indonesia. Our focus is on global mental health and on bolstering the existing resources in the communities where we work.

    Na Sri Lance przejazdy są bardzo tanie. Za 100 km jazdy autobusem zapłacimy 3 zł. Pociągi w zależności od klasy mają różne ceny, ale także nie jest drogo. Najmniej opłaca się brać tuk tuka, ale czasem nie ma wyjścia bo nic innego w dane miejsce nie dojdzie. Jazda po drogach na Sri Lance to zawsze ryzykowanie życia :) Kierowcy są szaleni i nie zwracają na nic uwagi. Warto mimo wszystko tego doświadczyć.

Asia’s most beautiful railway line? The “Main Line” cuts through tea plantations and jungle, then passes Buddhist temples and relicts of the British Empire. In the 19th century the British built a railway in what was then their colony of Ceylon. Their idea was to transport goods such as tea from the highlands to the port of Colombo. Today it’s mainly only locals and tourists who use the so-called "Main Line." The route is considered one of the most picturesque in the whole of Asia. Our trip takes us from the capital, Colombo, to Ella in the highlands. Our first stop is one of the country’s largest elephant orphanages. And then on to Kandy, the former capital of the Singhalese kingdom. The city is home to the famous Temple of the Tooth, which is said to house the Buddha’s top left canine. The train then winds its way further up into the highlands. We watch tea pickers at work and go to a tea factory to discover where the aroma comes from. Nuwara Eliya is Sri Lanka’s highest town at an altitude of almost 1900 meters, where a racecourse still brings the colonial era back to life. The stations have also retained their own colonial charm: in 1901, a signaling system was set up to make the long journey safer. And those suffering from the altitude can catch their breath at the final stop, the spa in Ella. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

An Elephant is loaded on a truck on its way somewhere arround Galle. To have a rest, the driver decided to stop in the shade of a tree beside the main road. About Elephants: Elephants are large land mammals in two genera of the family Elephantidae: Elephas and Loxodonta. Three species of elephant are living today: the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant and the Asian elephant (also known as the Indian elephant). All other species and genera of Elephantidae are extinct, some since the last ice age although dwarf forms of mammoths may have survived as late as 2,000 BC.Elephants and other Elephantidae were once classified with other thick-skinned animals in a now invalid order, Pachydermata.Elephants are the largest land animals now living.The elephant's gestation period is 22 months, the longest of any land animal. At birth it is common for an elephant calf to weigh 120 kilograms (260 lb). They typically live for 50 to 70 years, but the oldest recorded elephant lived for 82 years.The largest elephant ever recorded was shot in Angola in 1956. This male weighed about 24,000 lb (11,000 kg),with a shoulder height of 3.96 metres (13.0 ft), a metre (yard) taller than the average male African elephant.The smallest elephants, about the size of a calf or a large pig, were a prehistoric species that lived on the island of Crete during the Pleistocene epoch.Elephants are a symbol of wisdom in Asian cultures and are famed for their memory and intelligence, where they are thought to be on par with cetaceans[9] and hominids.Aristotle once said the elephant was "the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind".The word "elephant" has its origins in the Greek ἐλέφας, meaning "ivory" or "elephant".According to observations, healthy adult elephants have no natural predators,[13] although lions may take calves or weak individuals.They are, however, threatened by human intrusion and poaching.Olifant and its variations (ex. oliphant, olyphant) are archaic spellings of elephant. Aside from elephants, the word has been used to refer to ivory, elephant tusks, musical horns made of elephant tusks, or a musical instrument resembling such horns.It appears in Middle English as olifant or olifaunt, and was borrowed from Medieval French olifanz. The French word owes something to both Old High German olbenta "camel", and to Latin elephantus "elephant", a word of Greek origin.OHG olbenta is a word of old Germanic origin; cf. Gothic ulbandus also meaning "camel". But the form of the OHG and Gothic words suggests it is also a borrowing, perhaps indeed directly or indirectly from Greek "ἐλέφας" (elephas), which in Homer only meant "ivory" but from Herodotus and on the word also referred to the animal.The earliest attested form of the word is the Mycenaean Greek e-re-pa-to, written in Linear B syllabic script.The African elephant genus contains two or, arguably, three living species; whereas the Asian elephant species is the only surviving member of the Asian elephant genus, but can be divided into four subspecies. The African and the Asian elephant diverged from a common ancestor some 7.6 million years ago.The world population of Asian elephants—also called Indian elephants—is estimated to be around 60,000, about a tenth of the number of African elephants. More precisely, it is estimated that there are between 38,000 and 53,000 wild elephants and between 14,500 and 15,300 domesticated elephants in Asia, with perhaps another 1,000 scattered around zoos in the rest of the world.The Asian elephants' decline has possibly been more gradual than the African and caused primarily by poaching and habitat destruction by human encroachment.Several subspecies of Elephas maximus have been identified, using morphometric data and molecular markers. Elephas maximus maximus (Sri Lankan elephant) is found only on the island of Sri Lanka. It is the largest of the Asians. There are an estimated 3,000--4,500 members of this subspecies left today in the wild, although no accurate census has been carried out recently. Large males can weigh upward to 5,400 kg (12,000 lb) and stand over 3.4 m (11 ft) tall. Sri Lankan males have very large cranial bulges, and both sexes have more areas of depigmentation than other Asians. Typically, their ears, face, trunk, and belly have large concentrations of pink-speckled skin. There is an orphanage for elephants in Pinnawala, Sri Lanka, which plays a large role in protecting the Sri Lankan elephant from extinction.Elephas maximus indicus (Indian elephant) makes up the bulk of the Asian elephant population. Numbering approximately 36,000, these elephants are lighter grey in colour, with depigmentation only on the ears and trunk. Large males will ordinarily weigh only about 5,000 kg (11,000 lb), but are as tall as the Sri Lankan. Wikipedia
