Note: Nanda no longer works at the World Bank.
Nanda Gasparini can talk and write endlessly, so it's no surprise she has a blog (you may need to stop her every now and then). She blames this on being from Venezuela, a country where she says everyone speaks forever (including the president). Living for the past two years in Laos, she's proud to be the only Venezuelan in the country. She's also the World Bank's communications specialist on the Nam Theun 2 project, a hydroelectric dam being built in the country. Prior to arriving in Laos she worked and studied in the U.S. where she was able to pick up an American accent.
