The first coffee hour guest in 1998 is Ms. Archana Singh from India. She will wear a traditional India "sari" and she will also prepare some Indian snacks and "chai" (Indian spiced milk tea).
India has a long and rich history made up of a great variety of cultures and languages (18 official languages and something like 300 if you include the various tribal dialects!). Ms. Singh will introduce a variety of aspects of Indian life, and so after a traditional Japanese New Year, how about including an Indian experience in Tsukuba as well?
Everyone is welcome, and you can come and go as you please if you can't stay for the whole time. Complimentary snacks along with tea and coffee are always served. So come out and join us.
