Culture Shock

Our study is about to make a major detour. Up to this point, we’ve been learning about cultures that are somewhat similar to ours. And, even though Japan is probably the most different, we live in an area that is home to many Asians and we’re pretty familiar with the culture. We’ve played it pretty safe, kept well within our comfort zone….until now.

Initially, I had Belgium as one of our “B” countries, and while it would have been nice to learn about their delicious food for a week, I really found nothing for art, etc. Since Bangladesh is the most populated country (for its size) in the world, it seemed more logical to go with Bangladesh. Sorry, Belgium.

So, a week of bold print fabrics, orange striped tigers and much more await us. I have absolutely no clue what we’re doing, but here we go!
