Woman On The Railroad

Woman walking on railway track

The woman was walking the railway track

Shot in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka.

A woman wearing a saree was walking on the railway. It was common to walk on the railroad here. I saw many locals walking like her when I saw any railway tracks. During no trains ran, locals used the railroad. It might be shortcuts. Yet I couldn't understand them. I thought it was easier to walk on the paved roads.

The railway in this country was built by the British during its rule to transport coffee and tea from the hill country for export.
