My good friend Ben Constance is in Sri Lanka on a month long medical mission (and hopefully some vacation too). He is keeping a blog of his trip there and it is very good! So far he has been updating daily with posts and photos. If you have an interest in international medicine, check out Sri Lanka 2009!
PS: Are you interested in working abroad in the medical field as a nurse or physician? Someone recently sent me a link about a forum called MedWorkWorld which he started in order to focus on just these issues. It is a "nuts-n-bolts" forum for details that are often hard to find, such as what it is like to work in a particular place, what housing prices are like, all the lifestyle stuff. Find out now the details for the places you want to go!
