What an excellent, thought-provoking post!

I'm not very time-oriented myself, so I rather like the idea of an event-oriented culture.

I especially loved the anecdote about the girls' crocheting the snowflakes - and (though the causation may be different) just as with real snowflakes, no two are alike. Somehow that seems just as it should be. Maybe each real snowflake interprets its instructions in its own individual way!


very informative, thanks for a great read.


There are times when I wonder how communication ever takes place at all, there are really so many things which can be misunderstood between two people! I can really identify with the FarSide cartoon right now! I always wonder why even when it's clear I don't understand people will still talk on and on in their own language!


It's so easy to forget how much goes into communication. This is a good reminder that it's not just what's said, but so much more as well.

My namne is Jennie Adalberth and I'm a physio therapy student from Sweden.
Next spring (2007) me and my class-mate Evelina will write an essay and the term after that (autumn 2007) we will do the study.
As soon as Evelina and I started to discuss what we wanted to write about we noticed that we had something close to heart. We would really like compaire the treatment of a certain disease in Nepal with the one in Sweden. This to help us understand and expand our knowledge of different treatments over the boarders.
We don't really know how to get onwards with this idea though which we really want to come true.
Is there any possibility for you to help us get in contact with a Nepalese hostpital, a Nepalese physio therapist or likewise?
Evelina and I would be very thankful if you would like to contact us and help us in this matter and/or guide us further.

Kanchhi's Korner

    Kanchhi loves to travel. His name, in Nepali, means "the littlest one", and he is the littlest of my snowleopards. He even has his own scrapbook album, called, "Where's Kanchhi?"
