'Aedanda' to reach a paddy field, Gampaha, Sri Lanka.

 Paddy fields have to be kept constantly drenched in water during growth. There are a lot of water carrying channels crisscrossing these fields. There are improvised contraptions called 'Aedanda's by which people walk across the water channels in the paddy fields. I took these two pictures in Gampaha, Sri Lanka.
