Enjoying Sri Lanka
As a bonus, John also got to explore Sri Lanka’s beautiful countryside while there during his time off!
On weekends, John visited Mirissa for a beach trip, went on a train journey to Ella through mountainous tea plantations, saw elephants on safari and climbed up the famous Lion's Rock. He also visited the ancient ruined city of Anuradhapura.
“The day we spent touring the ayurvedic village, we rode an ox cart through gardens of tropical fruit, went on a boat across a lake covered with water-lilies, and ate one of the most best meals I've ever had.
“Sri Lanka is a great choice of country for learning as well as visiting and exploring. I came back as a better doctor and person and have really expanded my horizons for my future medical career.”
