1. What is the furthest from home that you’ve ever been?

The furthest from home that I have been from home is a trip to State College, Pennsylvania, USA. It is 15,400 km or 9570 miles away from India. I was visiting my cousin who lives there.

2. What country have you been to that has the most difficult and different language?

I couldn’t follow the language in Singapore that some of the locals spoke, at all. I don’t even know if the language I mean is Malay or Mandarin. They would speak to me in English, and speak in this mysterious language of which I couldn’t follow a single word, to each other. It felt like shopkeeper code and left me on the back foot. (Defensive)

3. What’s the longest you have been out of your home country?

I was out of India for 7 weeks, in 1988.

I was eleven. My aunt invited me to her home. I flew from New Delhi to JFK and spent seven weeks with my cousins, twins, who were twelve at the time.
