🇬🇧English 🇯🇵日本語 🇪🇸Español 🇫🇷Français 🇧🇷Português

“Is it possible to feel closer to countries in Africa and Latin America while being in Japan?”

In order to answer this question, the special spring event “Let’s feel the world closer with the five senses” was held in Japan on the last week of our temporary return from Africa. It was the first time event sponsored by the global learning center “3L-Miel”. The first day was the Mozambique and the second day was the Chile. Despite the last-minute announcement, thanks to the support of many people, the both events were full, and promoted learning experience for both participants and organizers.

Learning on Diversity from Rainbow Country Mauritius

🇬🇧English 🇯🇵日本語 🇪🇸Español 🇫🇷Français 🇧🇷Português

Oh, you lived in a resort country!

That was the typical misunderstanding I kept hearing when I said I lived in Mauritania since 2018, as many people thought it was MAURItius, a country also known as “rainbow country” for its diversity.

And after years of this MAURI*** dichotomy in mind, I finally visited Mauritius, which was truly amazing. “God created Mauritius first, and then created heaven in imitation of Mauritius” as Mark Twain, author of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, put it, Mauritius is full of charm. It was not only nice resort, but it also lived with diversity which I believe is a key to the better world to embrace the difference (without that, we might keep having wars and conflicts).

In this post, I would like to share some of the tastes of Mauritius through online info and what I experienced (not available online and several highlight collage photos!), hoping this can contribute to promoting Mauritius and diversity.

Feel the connection and diversity of the world through cassava

🇬🇧English 🇯🇵日本語 🇪🇸Español 🇫🇷Français 🇧🇷Português

Do you like Cassava?

Ca………What?

If that’s the kind of your reaction, this article is for you.

Although I always say in my profile and lectures that I lived on 5 continents, I didn’t know much about cassava until I came to Mozambique. The movement I had over the past year (Denmark to Brazil, Mozambique, Japan, Indonesia then back Mozambique) I could feel the world through cassava.

In this article, I will introduce why cassava is actually important for everyday life and the world (WHY), how I felt the world through cassava (HOW), and what cassava is in the first place (WHAT). I hope this could be some learning to you.
