Chuti Nangi from the house opposite(left) helped the girls with wearing the diyaredda

The diyaredda is the cloth the ladies ear instead of swimsuits in the village to preserve thier modesty when taking their daily bath in the river, so my nieces had to conform to village tradition. Chuti Nangi my neighbor from accross the river was wearing a pair of long shorts which amused the Colombo clan no end. No one under 40 wears the redda and hatte in the village anymore except for one day of the year, namely Sinhala Avurudu
