Shannon made friends with a really nice person from India, who lives and works here now.
Over time I have gotten to know him. He is here from India, along with his two cousins. Being a very friendly soul and a very lonely one he has gradually introduced us to his former life in India.
October 24-29 (of this year) is the Festival of Lights in India called Diwali. On the 24th Shannon and her family were treated to a special meal made up of many delicious and unusual things (to our palates) — there wasn’t anything I didn’t like
Then on the 25th Shannon and I took to him some American food, and a small bag of pinto beans. (He looked extremely nonplussed as how to prepare the pinto beans :). I will take him some cooked next.)
The he sent home some more food for us to try…snacks made with rice and three types of pickles.
What a special gift to be included in their traditional celebration!
Very humbly your friend on a western Colorado farm,
