I am an evaluator from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, about to start a year-long contract in India.   I started this blog as a way to share my experiences with capacity building, doing evaluation work in India, and living in a new and very different culture.  I will also be writing about my time travelling during this year… I share my contract with another Canadian (an evaluator from the Ottawa region), which means I work just over half of the year, and get three periods of vacation of about 6 weeks each.
