A teacher finds how much he can learn about himself through lessons to a second-language English student.
A newcomer realizes that a place is not what it first seems to be.
A traveler learns that a city can break a friendship.
A group of marines discover a working telephone in the middle of a Central American jungle.
An outsider experiences the strangeness of discovering others like himself in a foreign land.
The Museum of Language & Place, like other museums, has rooms and exhibits. Unlike other museums, however, this one lets you move directly from one room to any other. Each room has one exhibit; there are 18 exhibits and 21 rooms. (I’ll let you discover where the remaining rooms lead to.)
Entry is free. All you need is curiosity. And time.
Enter the museum through Room 1. (And as you navigate through those rooms, remember that you cannot take in the Louvre or Uffizi in a single visit.)
Edition #5 has something else too. (You can’t buy a DVD these days without getting those extras, Making of documentaries, Behind The Scenes snippets, can you?) It comes with a short Q&A with the previous four hosts of this carnival. Read more about it in the hosting experience.
P.S. Edition #6 of the carnival will be hosted by Michelle Elvy at her blog Glow Worm. Michelle is an independent writer and an editor of the 52/250 flash writing initiative. She lives on a sailboat.
The theme of edition #6 is: “language and place on the edge”. The issue is planned for late May, submissions will be open from around 15th April to 15th May. Further details here.
