Hi Evelyn,

thank you for yet another profoundly enlightening dispatch. It is so easy to view the things that seem incomprehensible to us through the murky glasses of western arrogans, without realizing that most of what we see is a reflection of our own ignorance. "Those peasants are so stupid. We never do it like this at home..." Damn right! You are not at home.

It can be frustrating at times, not to understand the local customs, which makes it even more clear how important it is to try to talk to people with an open and perceptive mind and to really try and understand what it is we missunderstand. It is not that they are wrong – it is us that don't understand.

To take the time to learn about the culture you visit and to try and pick up some of the language makes the contact with its people so much more rewarding, for both sides.

So, thank you for the enlightenment, Evelyn.

Take good care of yourself

Greetings from Stockholm

Hold additionally to pale cheerful colors within the materials - banana yellow, aqua and cream are good choices. This may counter the dark wall and floor and hold the look light and ethereal.
