Water monitor. These guys were just cruising round under a culvert on the side of the road. The wildlife is amazing! There is even electric fences on the side of the roads to prevent wild elephant from crossing into farmland!
some of the many wooden carvings on the side of the roadside.
Local police comparing their "winnings". Spot fines for bad driving adds to their monthly wages!!! Believe me, its not hard to make a good living doing this!!!

Sunrise in Battacloa
This place was hit hard in the 2004 Tsunami. 0ver 30 thousand Sri Lankan islanders lost their lives, over 8 thousand from this very place. It was very humbling to walk around this area.
Just love the old faces of Sri Lanka. This guy went shrimp fishing for over 40 years. Another survivor of the Tsunami
The next few sequences are mesmerizing to watch. Shrimp fishermen casting their nets.
