On Top – Stilt Fishermen, Sri Lanka

No, we’re not going to sit on a comfortable chair and cast our lines. We’re going to sit on uncomfortable sticks for hours to catch fish. Props to them for their patience and effort.

Found on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, I was lucky enough to view an extract of daily life morning and evening from the beach side restaurant of my guesthouse.

I personally didn’t give it a go, better off left to the experts who seem to have no problem filling their bag with fish.

Infamous for visiting tourists like me, I bought a wooden carving (yes, I am a great tourist).  And in a nearby restaurant was this painting on a column:

And that’s all, folks.  Smiley face.
