I made an offhand comment yesterday about the date of my upcoming craft show, and then learned that it was a week closer than what I'd thought. Eek!
So in lieu of fresh Rurality content, I'm phoning in a few links.
When I was a kid I went with a friend to church camp. One night a missionary spoke to us, and went around the campfire circle saying everyone's name in Spanish. Even though mine turned out to be just "Karen" pronounced with an accent, I was entranced. That's the exact moment I became interested in foreign cultures.
I like reading blogs from other countries, and especially those written by people who aren't natives. My old favorite blog My Blue House (Hispanic-American in France) may be gone, but here are two others I've been enjoying recently.
View From Iran - American in Iran
Tokyo Girl - Brit who was in Tokyo but who's recently moved to Australia
And of course it's Friday so you should visit the Friday Ark.
