S01 E37: Sri Lanka: Shane Cortese
Shane's Sri Lankan adventure unlocks the mysteries, joys, danger and sadness of a nation in turmoil. The Tamil Tigers have a strangle-hold of fear, with frequent suicide bombings on busses, trains and in other public areas. The tsunami of 2005, although largely forgotten by the rest of the world, left a trail of destruction that mars large tracts of the South Coast of the island. But despite all this, Shane discovers ordinary Sri Lankans to have open hearts, quick wits and a passion for sharing their unique place.
