Return Gift

Saw this North Indian girl in the gym, speaking flawless Tamil to the trainer, and realized that the greatest respect, someone can show to a place they live and work in, that's not theirs to start with, is to learn its language and speak it.

I lived in Mexico, and while the younger generation--my students learning to speak English--the rest of the town, and Mexico, for that matter, gave me the greatest compliment: that I looked Mexican. I learned to speak fluently while there.You are absolutely right.
For the first time, I clicked on 'Next Blog.' And look at how brilliant you are. Will visit often; if you have a feed, I'll hook up. From the blog next door, Linda

True, that. But I think that respect should come out of choice and not out of force or due to expectation.
