On our way back from Yala, We stopped at Galle Fort, Driving through a huge gateway, once inside, The buildings still look amazing, We got out of our minibus and walked along the Fort wall, The sea is rough here, with rocks as you look down, We carried on towards Flag Rock, Which is one of the 9 points of Galle Sea wall, A few locals were standing on top, offering to take our photo, Once they had done this, They advised that for 200 rupee, they would dive into the sea. They laughed at the look on our faces, We agreed, The next thing, the young guy, aged 20yrs ran like the wide, and dived off Flag Rock, As He emerged and everyone cheered, We gave his friend 300 rupees, he seemed happy, But what a way to make a living........
