Into India and Africa

I’m leaving Friday for a three week work trip: India, Ireland, UK, and Sierra Leone. Yes, I got my inoculations. Yes, I know I’ll probably get sick anyway. Yes, I’m excited anyway.

I’ll be in the Indian state of Orissa, in the Bhubaneswar area, for one week. My week in Sierra Leone will be in and around Freetown. Do you know anyone interesting there to whom you’d introduce me? (That may sound ridiculous, but within minutes of certain friends finding out I was going, I had multiple introductions to people in both places. The world really is small.) Drop me an email – my first name @ – if so. Thanks in advance!
