    Talking to a Mason


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter sunethra says masons like her neighbor, Raja, are well-respected in Sri Lanka. "They can earn a good wage and are constantly needed to build buildings and houses for people," she says. "They are very much respected, as they are builders of our homes and buildings."
    - yvonnezusel, CNN iReport producer

    Raja my next door neighbour who is also a mason baas was on the roof trying to complete the chimmney to the roof.  He was standing about 15ft above and there was a wind blowing, anyway he told me he was putting the bricks with cement and that the chimmney will go up high, the house is about 30 feet high looking down from the ground.

    Raja has been a mason baas for the last 25 years or so he told me


    This is was a difficult interview as Raja was way up a scafolding and I could not ask too many questions and distract him, as he was in a precarious position and one wrong false move could send him way down the precepice.
