Publisher's Summary

La apasionante aventura que tuvieron que vivir los Romaníes desde que salen de la India, todavía divididos en tribus, hasta que se acaban uniendo entre ellos formando lo que sería después el pueblo Rom, cautivó a Kike del Olmo de tal manera que no tuvo más remedio que echarse a la carretera en busca de más pistas. En un viejo pub de Calcuta se fragua el plan, unir la India y España por tierra en un destartalado Land Rover, que se convertiría casualmente en transporte y albergue. Un viaje a la antigua donde los protagonistas pasan de situaciones límite como tener que comer escoltados por la policía en un pueblo cerca de la frontera entre Pakistán y Afganistán, a momentos extraordinarios donde camioneros iraníes se confabulan para protegerlos de cualquier ataque nocturno en una de las fronteras más desangeladas del planeta.
Este es un viaje lleno de personajes extraordinarios, situaciones al límite y no pocos momentos hilarantes con el fin de encontrar diferencias y similitudes entre Romaníes de toda Europa partiendo de sus verdaderos orígenes; las tribus del Norte de la India.

Iberian narration proved challenging

I mention that as most readers of this site would be used to Western Hemisphere accents. If I paid very strict attention, I was able to follow the story, but any distraction and I had to stop and come back to the book.
As far as the storyline itself, the work had the feel of a series of podcasts. The author makes friends with local Roma in each location, explaining the situation and what's being done to improve their lot (if anything).
