When I am in a strange land,I am fascinated by their dress,their language and architecture. I am not fussy about their food.I only stick to the food I know. I am always concerned about different types of food. The ingredients,how it is cooked and what it is, especially when it is meat. I have no problem with any kind of fish or vegetables. I do not spend too much time thinking of  the varieties available.I am quite happy to have a burger and move on.

I love watching people wearing their traditional dress,their language and their interaction with strangers. I had a first hand experience when I went to Llanberis for teaching practice.The Welsh are a very friendly bunch of people.Sometimes we spoke to them pretty much using sign language. They do speak English, some don’t.They were the ones I had fun with. We communicated with them despite our lack of knowledge of their language. The children in school were happy to see us. We taught them English.I found them very cooperative.

We saw some old buildings there.Our two week stay there was very productive.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this.

    I am, like you, quite happy when I’m experiencing the new ways of different people in different cultures. We humans are such a diverse group, and yet we all share the same concerns.

    All good wishes,

    robert
