Tam: நிலாவெளி nilāveḷi – Sin: නිලාවැලි nilāvæli

‘Moonlit Land’  EP,  Sri Lanka

From Tam: nilā ‘moonlight’; and veḷi, ‘open space’, ‘expanse’

Nilaveli has an enviably long and pristine beach which is undoubtedly even more awesome when lit up by a full moon.

Channels here pump seawater into salt pans ready for harvesting in the dry season.
