It seems like it took a long time coming, but the letter that officially confirmed my appointment as a Fulbright Scholar finally arrived! Kris and I are very excited, though a bit anxious about all that we need to arrange before we leave for Sri Lanka.
I decided to start a blog as a useful way for Kris and I to maintain contact with all of our family and friends during our adventure and a way for us to record our experiences.
Now we will see if the old adage “once begun is half done” is true. This blog will only be useful if I keep it up!
