Move over Monastery...there's a new monster mountain full of steps that is master! Adam's Peak: More than 5,000 steps up the side of a mountain! I've read that it's 5,200...some say 5,500...I honestly didn't count. It just kept going! Whew! We left Colombo WAY too late (try 10:30pm) and arrived around 4am. I was disappointed, because I really wanted to watch the sunrise from the top. As soon as the bus stopped, our family hopped out and practically ran up as fast as we could. Honestly, we only made it about a third of the way before sunrise hit. However, we just kept going anyway. It took us about 3 hours to go all the way up to the top. It took about 2 hours to come down. Coming down was MUCH harder! We had to run, because if we went slowly, or stopped, our legs started jerking uncontrollably, and we would collapse! It was funny. Once down at the bottom, Dev, the kids, and I ate ice cream and yogurt, guzzled water, and dozed while waiting for the rest of our group.
We went up there with just over 50 people--Everyone made it to the top! Now it's time to decide...when to go again...?

I love to read and do reviews for Compass Book Ratings!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
