Abstract:

Sri Lanka is known as the "nation of smiling people," and on the journey from Galle to the town of Trincomalee, we see those smiles in abundance. Until recently, this train ride would have been impossible due to one of the longest and most relentless civil wars in history. While the war claimed over one-hundred thousand lives and displaced millions more, no one seems to know why the war was fought. All anyone knows is that the future in Sri Lanka is now full of hope for a peaceful society.
