Cultural Differences

On the field trip we sat in a room that is normally used as a classroom.  On the chalkboard was a section entitled Practical Life showing bathing equipment.  There are small drawings under it with the towel, bucket of water and bar of soap.  Most people here bath outside with these 3 pieces of equipment.  We are so blessed to have indoor showers.  There is a second section entitled Nature Talk with drawn pictures of two different types of trees; apple tree and paw paw tree.

    Once back in the US you all, especially the boys, will surely have reverse culture shock. I won’t make you bathe using buckets. I’m glad your house has showers.
