Toursim and the effect on the community.

The travel story goes like this…The Trip to Egypt-Misr in November 2011 was so Life changing experience..As i was going through the places to travel in Egypt-The trip would have been incomplete if one doesn’t travel to Aswan and doesn’t experience Nubian community.So,Nubians are ethnic group from northern Sudan and lives in southern Egypt.A walk around Nubian village with a visit to a local home is a very common thing on an itienary of whoever visits Aswan,Egypt.The first view itself was so striking enough.Friendly people,culturally upgraded,traditionally colourful.so here,especially Nubian women contributes more to the Nubian community as they are the people who brings in tourists to their homes,display their artwork,their cooking talents in their local cuisine,etc,.Nubian village and the Nubian women are the most important identities of Nubian cultural tourism in Egypt.Nubians just dont produce great folklore music,but beautiful clothes,ethnic handicrafts and distinctive spices.Nubian community is home to the beautiful world’s second largest Man-Made lake-Lake Nassar facing the awe strucked and magnificent Abu simbel.The interesting thing which i saw at Nubian village  were mud brick houses,sand floors,keeping alligators as pets,creative and daily life inspired paintings and artifacts at home..And as the village is right across the Nile so the eco community tourism is developing.As i went with 6 -8 friends of mine from various countries like China,Australia,Argentina,India and BrazilDSC01304 DSC01317 DSC01385 Luxor Aswan Abu Simbel 385 to just see and understand what is it all about ,that itself displays that somehow we definately contributed lot to the community which I am pretty sure and i also saw that it  is conserving  natural and cultural environment…so,lets not miss visiting  this fantastic gateway of Egypt and most importantly of Africa.

Thailand Education

so,its been long time that i have been blogging..let me continue with the series of cultural shock which definately makes impact on everything…everything means everything..so as the bit of focus here lies a bit on education so..let me start off now..

1)Thai culture-sanook sanook(enjoy,enjoy),sabai sabai(good good) has starting creating a messy situation in thai education system.yes i know nobody loves changes..but yes someone has to start to take the risk of changing things…

2)The style of adapting to the old way of teaching has to change.independence to the the students and teachers is required in the teaching process,mai pen rai(its ok,no problem) attitude has to change.yes changes cannot happen overnight,but changes should not take centuries too..yes(chai yan yan) everytime….no…we have the opportunity now so make the best use of it now..

3) cmon people lets produce natural speakers and not robots…how are you?? i am fine and u??…phewww. there are more adjectives in english.right..simple basic changes.fine can be changed to great,good,not good,okay,whatever…. i am not asking people to change in great way.understanding of a concept is much more important than google searched printouts…

so…as i was helping my students for a debate competiton, i have been seeing series of annoying,interesting,surprising things..and i realised that somehow education system invariably not just english education system,all in all….many things can help to improve..but english education system,lets see that.so i realised TOURISM,oh yeah it does help the community to develop and help people to communicate in whatever way they can.more tourists,more interaction.i feel its not a forced process..so not just economy wise-but a heart to heart interaction,development of personal skills.all this happens naturally…yes we cannot avoid GDP  and all,but right now,Thailand needs tourism in this way where a community is in a continuos process of learning…..OK GUYS SEE YOU SOON….
