People move around on foot, by scooter or on carts pulled by a donkey. Only a few tarps are allowed on the main square, for those arriving or leaving the city.

Stilt fishing is practised by several families of fishermen of Sri Lanka (here in Ahangama)
It is transmitted from generation to generation, and no one knows exactly when this fishing technique was invented. Some say that it would have begun in the middle of the last century. This tradition disappeared shortly after the 2004 tsunami, but things returned to normal. Twice a day, fishermen go to roost on these two-meter high stilts and wait patiently, making constant movement in the water to attract fish.
