|KULVINDER IN HER ROOM IN TÄCKLEBO|
this is a thanks letter and a letter about my trip to Sweden
At first I am thankful to Elsa mam and all persons who gave me a chance to come there. It was possible because of your help otherwise I could not afford this. I never thought about go to Sweden, it was only my dream. Always I wanted to come there and meet all of you. But now I think if we want something from bottom of our heart then it can be possible and now I believe dreams come true.
What I have seen in Sweden I can't explain in words because I am totally speechless. Sweden is totally different from here and for me also. Roads, people's behavior, systems, tecnology and lifestyle is very different. After this trip I felt more strong myself.
I met people in the meetings that were very polite and nice to me. They liked our program in Bheel Basti and our work. It gives me new thoughts to develop my work.
I‘ve seen there health care Center with good and helping staff.I’ve seen old age home where people lived just like in a home. I’ve seen schools and their education system. I think pupils feel free in their schools. Everywhere was very clean.I’ve seen there amazing Skansen Park in Stockholm with old wooden houses. Now I can imagine how Sweden looked many years ago.
We have done sight-seeing by boat that was very great experience for me. Around me water and water, I never seen anything like this in my life. That time I thought is this true or am I sleeping and just see a dream.
The text above is shown with pictures in the first post Kulvinders letter of thanks 1
I saw there light house on an island and so called breadbasket that was unbelievable for me bcoz I’ve seen how ice moved and made big hole in the stone- ground.

People's life style is also very different from here and I noticed women are not under pressure.They are more free and independent. Here also many women are independent but they have no right to use their salary for their own. Sometimes I think because this is our culture. But after this trip I think why do women sacrifice always. I realized if we give respect to ourselves then others give us respect.

One more thing that impressed me was their food. Their food was different but very tasty. I have eaten many type of food and I learn also. I’ve always eaten here very similar food in my life.
This trip was very educational, interesting and inspiring for me. It gave me new energy for my work.
I wish this will not be my first and last trip because I want to go there again and again and I think travels give us more energy. And our way of thinking and work can be changed with travel experiences.Now at last I want to say again thanks to all of you for your financial and moral support to me.
