We made our first trip to the local market place. Navigating the market is a blast to the senses; from the fragrant fruits and colourful vegetables, to the grocers pitching their prices. All the sights, sounds and smells made for a true Sri Lankan experience.
We also met with some representatives from Sri Lanka Unites, a local youth movement for hope and reconciliation. They were running a leadership camp close by to where we were staying. We interviewed some members and made some new connections, ones that will help us to further strengthen our local community network.
