Intrepid Express reader Alice Hancock found a universal language in India…
“We had built houses together all week, sharing little more than a few nods and hand gestures. Then, on day five, we took turns singing our favorite songs while we worked, their lyrics in Tamil and ours in English. Neither of us understood a word of what the other was singing, but it didn’t stop us from dancing and laughing as though we’d known each other for years. I still don’t know what the residents of that small village in southern India were singing, but I remember them all as my friends.”
