The Monks and the Muslims

Galle Fort - Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Walking around Galle Fort one day, I noticed a group of young Muslim schoolboys coming toward me on the street. I couldn't help but take their photo.

When they got closer, one boy called out, 'Are you married?'

I called back, 'Why do you want to marry me?'

They giggled like crazy and carried on down the street, while I continued to photograph them. It was plain good luck that the Buddhist monks in the photo below showed up on the berm. Perfect timing!


One of my favourite photos!
