Island of Light Sri Lanka

Island of Light Sri Lanka

in Sri
. Pools of light are swimming on the grass, an unknown
mellow smell lingers in the air. Along the streets, women sell
coconuts and other yard treasures.

Branches strike my legs as I venture along a hidden pathway to
one of the east coast’s lonely beaches. The landscape here is a
patchwork of ruins; I gaze upon the former homes of families,
lovers and lost souls. All that’s left is chalky grey.

In the three weeks spent wandering around the island, I visit
Buddhist temples and local fish markets, travel from Unesco World
Heritage Sites to sprawling cities. Each of my senses are
overwhelmed: my eyes feel as if saturated with colour, my ears
adjust to different sounds. I have never been so deeply moved.
