The thing that really stands out in my mind when I think about my trip to Sri Lanka is the conversations I shared with the locals. They were so open and friendly and it made a refreshing change for me. I felt my hard Londoner self slowly dissolving away as I opened up, embracing strangers rather than ignoring them. It was a novelty as a Londoner that’s for sure.

These pictures were taken before the Sri Lankan civil war and I since watched a documentary called Sri Lanka’s Killing fields. It was one of the most graphic documentaries ever shown in the UK. It was devastating and harrowing. My heart breaks for all of these people.
