Amol Pavangadkar: Learning through lenses
The group had just finished their steak…yes STEAK in India, had their last round of mango ice cream, thanked their hotel staff and took their last group selfies. It was 10:15 p.m. and we were having our final group debriefing in the lobby of our temporary home in India.View story photos
I grew up in a pretty traditional American suburb upbringing. I didn’t learn a different language, we traveled to Florida, Washington, D.C., Cedar Point, California and, of course, “up north” on family vacations. Ethnic food meant tacos, lasagna, or, from my own German heritage, sauerkraut and springerle cookies. It was a different time then and the world seemed a lot bigger when I was a kid. International trips were for the wealthy, restaurants served American cuisine and there was no such thing as learning about the world by surfing the Net. America may have been a melting pot, but my neighborhood and schools were still pretty homogeneous. Things like the Olympics and movies offered opportunities to see different kinds of people, cultures, foods, languages and landscapes. It was a chance to experience places that seemed exotic and exciting, but only on a screen. As a kid, I never dreamed that I might someday visit places across the world. That seemed pure fantasy.View story photos
