... corner of Sri Lanka. We arrived at the village at 3am, and there was no road to the village, so we had to walk down a small winding path through the jungle. You heard all sorts of noises! Then we arrived at the house. It was a small one room shack, and when we entered, the smell just hit us. There were 5 people scattered around the floor. His father, mother, two brothers and sisters.
