Golly! Cliff Divers of Galle, Sri Lanke
Photos and video by Ed Salvato
Just a quick update from the road. Sri Lanka's an amazingly beautiful tropical island paradise, shaped like a tear drop, located to the south of India. Very close to the equator it has a tropical climate with palm trees, dramatic beaches and vivid sunsets most everyday. It's primarily a Buddhist nation so though it feels like a Caribbean island it really is different from any other island I've been to.
More later but for now enjoy the image above, which is of three members of a four-member team of cliff divers who jump off the cliff where they are posing here into the water at least 30 feet below. You get three jumps for 500 Sri Lankan rupees, which is just over $4.00.
The video below shows one of the cliff divers running and jumping into the water.
