I think I've mentioned before that we live near a paddy field. We thought it was an abandoned plot of land but imagine our surprise and delight one morning last week when we saw the following sight.
I was so happy that H1 got to see what city kids rarely get to see...the old fashioned farming techniques that we used to see as kids in villages.
Who needs David Beckham posing for Armani when you get Sri Lankan men in loin cloths ;o)
By about two in the afternoon they finished up...
and gave the buffaloes a well deserved rest. I was feeling a little sad for the hard work the buffaloes had to do, but felt a bit better when Hubby got talking to the men and we could see they actually cared for the animals. They said, 'Of cause they are tired...but they only do this once a year. The rest of the days they just spend roaming around...'
And while looking over the wall, we noticed this fellow change its colour to suite his surroundings. It was amazing.
I love living in Sri Lanka...
