Shop clusters in Sri Lanka

In certain sections of the various highways, there will be clusters of shops. One cluster will sell wickerware – supposed to be the best wickerware in the country. Another cluster will sell pineapples – hundreds and thousands of pineapples. Another cluster will sell King coconut. Yet another will sell lacquerware, and so on and so forth.

One cluster of shops will sell nothing but cashews (cadjus) during the season. I’ve been told that beautiful young girls in brightly coloured saris will hold out bags of cadjus to tempt passing motorists. (When we drove by, it wasn’t season.)

Outside of Kandy, there’s a line of shops that sell Sri Lankan treats – muscat and kiri dodol and other things I don’t know the names for.
