■ SRI LANKA, HIKKADUWA: There are physically demanding jobs then there are exhausting jobs! The profession I witnessed today falls into the latter category. A day laborer ventured into the village and went from house to house asking if people had any coconut trees he could climb. Despite him not speaking a word of English I decided to tag along on his hunt for trees to climb.
So why does he climb these coconut trees? What does he get paid? How many trees does he climb per day and more importantly, does he like Kasippu? 🤔
