The lieutenant governor and WASITRAC delegation are set to arrive in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Orissa, on Saturday.
We have 'recruited' three members of the delegation to contribute reports and photos to this space from their respective viewpoints as they travel. These include:
Dr. Antonio Sanchez, director of economic development and international relations for the Office of Lt. Governor.
Ina Dash, a 17-year-old student at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle. Ina served as a Senate page for the lieutenant governor for a week during the 2010 legislative session and is an intern with WASITRAC. She is also the daughter of Debadutta Dash, the co-chair of WASITRAC and lead organizer of this mission.
Diane Adachi, assistant vice president and special assistant to the Provost for International Relations & Protocols, University of Washington.
A list of all of the delegates, their biographies and their thoughts on the mission can be found on the mission itinerary.
