Sri Lanka: An Expat's reasons

An ex-pat (was) explains why he came back to Sri Lanka and why he chooses to stay there. More at “I was born in 1982 and my entire life has been defined by this war I had nothing to do with. It was just this messy inheritance. With the CFA I thought that maybe my parents generation would sort this out so I could have a normal life here, and build. That dream is rapidly slipping away for my generation, but I’m glad I had it. I still love Sri Lanka. I still feel like I’m home. I just have to do what little I can now. I still have that dream of a great Sri Lanka. It’s just one generation removed from me.”
