A Sri Lanka Update

On Jan 10-15 2017, Guangcai, Dilanka and Zhang Gan appeared in Columbo, Matara and Kandy of Sri Lanka. Their job was to update the contact with University of Ruhuna on marine geochemistry. And they checked/repaired the 2 air samplers shipped to the university. One sampler is ready for sampling, but another still need a new flow counter. The trip was successful, and interestingly, we spent a little time travelling on the unique tea garden trains.
