Before I announce the winners, I would like to say a few words…

One of the reasons I asked the participants to talk about their country is that I feel a lot of people (esp. Americans) don’t know much about other cultures/countries. I wanted to ask the question “what can we learn from each other?”. As a budding anthropologist, I have a natural curiosity about other cultures. I was amazed at how much information arrived onto my blog! Thank you all for volunteering to educate others about your wonderful countries.

There is too much hate in this world. The conflicts in the Middle East, the animosity towards Muslims, the gay-bashing. Let’s all take a moment to look at each as human beings, instead of enemies. I am hoping that my little push towards cultural understanding helps whoever reads this.

So…..the moment has arrived….the winners are……

Winner #1: Dee from Singapore

Winner #2: Anamarija T from Croatia
