50. Read a book about another culture

I just finished reading the book CultureShock! India.

I chose to read about this culture because over the past few years the Indian population in my school has grown so much.  I think in each of the last 3 or 4 years I have had nearly 10 students of Middle East or Indian decent.  Because of the growth we have had I figured I should learn more about their culture.  This book is designed more for the tourist traveling to India, but I was able to learn quite a few things that helped to explain some of the manerisms and ways that the people of the Indian culture carry themselves.  I am happy  I read this one, but I think I am done reading "tourist" books for awhile.  I think that they are only fun to read if you plan on going to that place.

Goal #5 done!
