Boating on Madu Ganga

The mother of all rivers is The Ganga, known to the English world often as the Ganges. The Ganga is THE Ganga. Other rivers are lesser gangas – so you’d have Mississippi Ganga or Hudson Ganga. Sunday morning I was able to join several friends for a paddled boat ride on a large estuary called the Madu Ganga, in Balapitiya south of Induruwa. And oh yeah, this is creative reuse of USAID tarp – no doubt used orignally in temporary post-tsunami shelter – to create rain and sun protection on the boat. Talk about useful development aid!
The lilies were lovely!
