We got to talk about lots of things at the Exshaw school during the Global Classroom Initiative.
But the very best was sharing stories about the animals in our lives. The kids there could relate to "protector" animals who also were household pets. The animals that work and protect us as a part of belonging to family.
And then there were the frightening stories of animals sneaking up behind us. Like the well-named "ee" - a Himalayan Lynx, a silent goat-snatcher if ever there was one.
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
