Sunset

by Ante Badzim

The sun had set and time got the better of us, my friend and I were the only ones remaining at the top of Sigiriya.  The last remaining moments of light we came across 4 monks that we had befriended earlier. There was a surreal moment makin g our way back down the 1202 steps in darkness, being guided by monks illuminating our path with the light from their mobiles.  Jumping fences and slightly disorientated we all made it safely to the bottom. We thanked our new friends and said goodbye smiling, one monk took a liking to my friend  Moe  and had even asked for his number .   
  
  The perfect ending to a perfect day.

Arriving in Talpe near   Galle   towards the end of our trip was always going to be a rewarding one. It was the first time during the Sri Lankan journey that there would be time to really relax, reflect and go for a well deserved swim in the oc  ean.  Our tuk tuk driver reminded me of home, the surfer type with scruffy hair, relaxed attitude and contagious smile. Even still with this reminder I wasn’t ready to go home, to be honest I still wish I was there.

Sun setting on stilt fisherman in Talpe that were more then happy to perform and pose for photos.     While taking photos one proudly showed off a fish just caught with an invitation to get up on the stilts, I rejected the offer as I was more keen on taking photos. My dear friend   Moe   took up the challenge and is still in pain to this day, not as easy as it looks.
