In my spare time I've been working on a video diary for future Fulbright scholars and teaching assistants that come to Sri Lanka. Not all of it will be relevant to everyone but it will give short looks into the differences that one might encounter when arriving. Some of you wanted to see an example of the videos so I've compiled the first part of the diary. It is a little cheesy, admittedly, but I think it could be useful to some people. Remember - it isn't finished so the video ends abruptly. Thank you for indulging me.
