Dear India #6

I'm organizing diaries from India Trip, and found story about my guide.
He's from Rajasthan and his tribe take care of trees and animals.He told me a story about a woman who breast-fed to a kid goat for six months and
363 people death because of protecting trees.

363?

And then I worked with a calculator.

Learn foreign languages like Schliemann

This year is going and the new year is coming.
What have you done and what would you like to do?
My interest led me to so many things besides learning languages.
Right now, I'm writing this blog with listening Hindi, so I'm kind of back.
The reason I started this blog was developing English brain within me.
Although I have been lazy, it still exists.

Today, I read about how Schliemann acquired foreign languages.

1. Read out a lot
2. Don't translate
3. Study at least one hour everyday

Nalanda University is located in Bihar, about 90km south east of Patna.

Nalanda University means the place giving Knowledge.



It used to be a flourishing residential university with over 10, 000 students and 1500 teachers.
Its importance as a monastic university continued until the end of the 12th century.



Dear India #4

It was 8 days trip and I took 990 photos.
And I just realized that 990 was multiple number of 33.
You might know that the number 33 has special meaning in the spiritual view.

We flew from Delhi to Patna by Air India craft.
Taking photos were forbidden at the inside of the Air Port because there was a military base near by.
We often faced such issues the trip.
