Take a break for a photographer on a bicycle
It’s about stopping, and watching. Most tourists lower their heads, pull up their sunglasses and step gingerly past them – the labourers who scoop out the nearby ditches so the beaches look clean.
Women load gravel into a shallow, round bowl; raise the bowl to their heads, step over wood plankways in their flip-flops, and gently pour the rough contents into a cement mixer. They smile if you do, and encourage their daughters to say “hello”. A little brother plays in gravel pile nearby, and a uncle playfully tosses a stone at him.
