Floating Boats 4298

Every November, the height of the retreating monsoon drops a rainy deluge on the East Coast of Sri Lanka – but everyday life goes on.

Although it is called the “Dutch Fort”, Batticaloa Fort was built by the Portuguese in 1628. The rain was falling, and the fortress grounds were uneven and soggy with long grass.

Parts of the fort are in reasonable condition and currently house several government administrative offices. Employees in the administrative offices are not too busy to step outside into the rainy corridors for a chat, a smile, and to race paper boats in the flooded gutters.
