Fruits for sale, Gannoruwa, Sri Lanka

This fruit seller doing his trade by the roadside at Gannoruwa, Sri Lanka, had quite a selection of fresh, tasty luscious fruits for sale. 'Gan-oruwa' - meaning 'fetch the boat' in Sinhalese, was the ferry crossing point into the Capital of the highlands of Ceylon, Kandy, in historic times, across the Mahaweli river. It now houses the agricultural research centre and the veterenirary reseach centre, among other departments. I took this picture on 7/6/2009.
