When was the last time you read story books? Me very long time ago but I remember as a child learning so much about our culture through the experiences of generations before from folk stories and songs.
Walking by this antique bookshop in Budapest, the covers of some books in the shopping window catch my eyes. At a closer look I am fascinated by the titles and cultures listed on this old series of books. I’ve never seen them before.
“The five husbands of a woman” – Eskimo stories; “The beautiful dolphin girl” – from Gilbert and Ellice islands; “The three widowed ministers” – from Korea; “The eight-petal lotus” – Tibetan legends; “The evil queens” – folkstories from Kashmir; “The Khan who had donkey ears” – Tuvai folk stories; and many more.
How amazingly rich human culture is!
