Trip to Cleveland

Submitted by Helen Thompson,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the wonderful, informative trip to the temple and the Indian restaurant. I really enjoyed the trip and the chance to interact with students, faculty from other divisions and staff that I don’t get to talk to often. When we got to the Hindu temple and were able to hear about the different deities and why there are so many; the days of special celebration and gifts of food etc.; how and when the devoted pray/worship; and many other customs, I was amazed. The musically quality of the worship was charming. 
The restaurant was delightful. I enjoyed listening to the description of the foods and our group each ordered different foods to share and were able to taste many different items from goat meat to spicy hot (to me) flavored rice to red donuts with potatoes in them. On my own I probably wouldn’t have been tempted to try an Indian Restaurant but after last night, I have changed my mind. 
Thank you so much.
