One advantage of an expatriate’s life is the exposure one gets to other cultures, especially for children who study in international schools. Last week we were at the Cultures Day event of Sohini’s school, the Copenhagen International School. Children and parents of different countries put together tables (stalls) presenting their cultures: their food, clothing, artifacts, music, peoples and languages, and much more. It was colourful and educational, to say the least. We helped our friends to set up an Indian table too, and it was one of the most popular in the event. It was interesting to see the little kids’ eyes lit up with amazement when you tell them that India is a huge country the size of 75 Denmarks, and schools teach in some 50 different languages.
