This is Colombo's bustling Manning Market where locals trade wholesale produce from sunrise. There's no end to sight of body movement. Each person looking like they have their own agenda to be somewhere and make their end of day wealth. Or rather to finish what has to be done and go home early to their family. Looks like hard work.
Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, has a long history as a port on ancient east-west trade routes, ruled successively by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. That heritage is reflected in its its architecture, mixing colonial buildings with high-rises and shopping malls. The imposing Colombo National Museum, dedicated to Sri Lankan history, borders sprawling Viharamahadevi Park and its giant Buddha.
