About Me: My name is Paul Wullenweber, I am from Germany and now very close to completing my third month here in India. I left Germany in early August to join FSL India’s home-based-project “Environmental Education” in the course of my year in the German IJFD-programme.
My Host Family: At the moment and for the next eight months, I am living in a host family a little outside of Kundapura. Although only my host mother Prathiba speaks English quite well, I also get along fine with the other members of my host family. Spoorthy, my younger sister (she is three years old), tends to be a little naughty sometimes, but she is still a pleasure to live with. As long as she is around, there is always something going on. My host mother and the others really help me a lot with any problem that I have and make me feel very well integrated into their family life. I’m looking forward to living with them for a few more months. Read the rest of this entry
