Our first discussion was a moment which I enjoyed much more than I expected. After staying at the village for one night, we had a small understanding of their lives, but already there were lots of ideas flowing. During these sessions I started to concentrate more and more on what other people were saying, rather than constantly thinking of what I was going to say next. It was inspiring to being in a room full of passionate people, both Sri Lankan and Australian.
