This last week has sped by on wings. With houseguests for my B&B venture; friends coming to lunch; the house has been full as it should be and there’s been lots of cooking and food.
We had a Dutch couple as our B&B guests for a couple of days. They are a nice buoyant couple determined to walk around and see South India on a shoestring. I learnt a lot about the Netherlands which I didn’t know before. And about their way of life. For instance, that Sarah went to convent school where the nuns checked the length of her uniforms everyday and that her Mom was very careful about who Sarah’s friends were . Sounds just like here 🙂
And with this couple, I learnt to interact with strangers much more than before. In this year, I can see how much my stiffness has been dissolving away. And I’ve been learning about other places and different ways of life. And that yet, people are the same underneath.
