Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways (Tin Hau Temple, Hong Kong)

Look up. Mind your breath. The incense smoke is thick. Now light a spiral stick for the Tin Hau Temple goddess of the sea. Look forward. Bow three times.

A challenge about perspective taking, Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways, with the fine folk at The Daily Post.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mariachi Culture

At the end of the Februrary 2013 SIT TESOL course at Centro Espiral Mana, our dear Mary Scholl surprised us with this fun gift. :)

Mexican traditional folk music sang by Costa Ricans in Costa Rica, for a group of teachers from all over the world? I think this stands the test of the Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture.

A song for Chile

Here they are singing a song for our Chilean friends. They had a song for almost all the countries represented at the Costa Rican centre that day: Chile, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico (of course), Guatemala, Panama, Peru and even the USA. I think Poland and Canada were the only ones they weren’t prepared for. Maybe next year!

"Where are you from?" "Canada." "Where in Canada?"  "Nova Scotia." "Hmmm...I don't know a song from Nova Scotia."
“Where are you from?”
“Where in Canada?”
“Nova Scotia.”
“Hmmm…I don’t know a song from Nova Scotia.”
