We'll discuss tomorrow and we'll have a new puzzle for you on Thursday. You guys are getting too good at these! Anyone out there have a puzzle photo they'd like to submit? Please let us know if you do.

The two no-longer operating stations are Orsay (of course) and...

Re: Breakfast With A View, Ella, Sri Lanka

We hadn't been to Ella for quite a few years and had not stayed here before either. I think the railway viaduct has only fairly recently become a popular attraction. The next time you go there, you will see several new signs pointing you in the direction of the bridge.
