I am a professor of Religious Studies at East Carolina University, and for the seventh year in a row, I am leading a study abroad program to India.

For more information about our program, see our website here: and also here: You can read previous blogs and see lots of great photos about previous trips.

This year, my assistant will be Aaron Iaquinto, who was a participant during the 2008 program. He is an artist and instrument maker.

We hope you enjoy following our journey.
