Several Snapshots giving just a first idea about the two to three hours drive from Colombo to Kandy in a private Bus. The ticket price is arround 3 USA dollars in local currency. No booking needed. Just get a seat or remain unseatedi if you can't wait for another less loaded bus. The private busses operate with concessions distributed by the governement authorities. All bus owner struggle to get a maximum of customers and this reflects on the driving style of the busdrivers, too. "Who gets first to the bus stop, will catch more clients.." Fares are quite reasonable, usualy not more than cents or a couple dollars, depending on the distance. Windows and doors may remain open to refresh the passengers and contribute to the special airborne feel, especialy at high speed, an addtional commun feature. No wings yet available for the participants. The crew is made off the driver and a "conductor" collecting the money from the travellers and issuing tiny paper tickets in exchange. The same conductor will also hang out off the bus or even jump out when approaching and stopping at bus stops so that his voice can be heard by the population on the street when he calls for new passengers. Conductors are always busy, even hyperactive when the bus gets crowdy. They make sure that everybody on the bus will pay and get off at the designated stop.
