Galle fort part 2.

The fort town is made up of a grid of narrow streets lined with heritage buildings.

That's the lighthouse on the old ramparts.

The lcoals taking a dip on a hot day.

Strolling along the ramparts with the sea on one side and the town on the other was the popular thing to do in the evenings.

Please do not use your horn here!

Turn the corner and you get a glowing pink wall...

I zoomed in on a woman with great outfit - striking blue, red and white striped shawl and pants paired with a floral tunic. VERY cool.

The tuk tuk or three wheeler that took you around for a pre-agreed price.

There was a local political rally happening on the day we arrived at the Galle fort. I notice a faint resemblance between the man in the rally poster to Barrack Obama, even down to the way he was posed.

An antique shop capitalizing on the town's heritage.
