Hello. Hei. Hola.

This is a blog by Romy, Armando and Marte about our trip to India. We are here primarily because Romy and Marte will be doing some field studies in a fishing community outside Balasore, Orissa (on the east coast of India, south of Calcutta by a few hours’ train ride). Armando is here just travelling after finishing his bachelor’s studies in New Mexico. His secondary purpose on this trip will basically be to be a personal assistant to both Romy and Marte, a logistics engineer, and an alpha male to fend off over zealous Indian men who decide that Marte is the woman of their dreams.
