Bengali Word of the Day January 12th

আতিথেয়তা (Aatheeyataa) Hospitality

Wherever we are in Bangladesh we are always shocked at how friendly everyone is.  Each person we meets takes the time to talk with us and provide us with food and drinks.  Everything tends to be so rushed at home in the United States, it is nice to sit and chat with people without feeling the pressure to constantly be moving onto the next activity. Hopefully we will be able to take his sense of peace and calm as we return to Ithaca.
