Day 1 of the Road Trip - Vishni's Perspective

by Vishni Vincent
Every one were excited as it was the first day of the journey. The team assembled at Wesley College hall, as it was the first assembly. It indeed was a good start for a history making journey. The assembly commenced at 7:30 am, followed by breakfast at the School premises. Every one got into the bus for the first time and our first visit was to galle face green. We had a time of fun and fellowship there, we spent some time talking and sharing the importance of galle face to our brothers from districts out of Colombo. We took pictures. From there we all went to the new Sri Lanka Unites office, ( No. 113, Kynsey Road , Borella - Colombo 8. ) and started working together (painting, dusting and all the work to make our own office look whole), which was more than just fun. After all the tiring work we went back to Wesley College to have lunch, from there we went to Image Center, along the marine drive, Bambalapitiya. We had a session with Ambassador Jayantha Dhanapala. Lessons on the importance of my contribution for a united Nation, violence is NEVER a solution in any situation and many more such valuable ideas were discussed. Then the girls left, where the boys other than the people in Colombo were taken back to Wesley College after dinner, as all of them were hosted by Wesley College for five days.
