Our furry friend Willie is enjoying his time in India, thanks to Ritika's aunt, Shakuntala. Shakuntala took the following pictures and wrote descriptions of Willie's adventures thus far in India. Right now, Willie is helping Shakuntala and her family prepare for the festival of Diwali. Let's see what Willie's been up to. Thanks to Shakutala for writing the following descriptions to the photos:
Willie Goes to the Bazaar:
To help us do our Diwali shopping Willie came with us to Diwali bazaar and made friends with lots of local people, using his great Wildcat charm. In this pic, Willie is with Mitali, a girl from the state of West Bengal. The streamers behind her are made by her parents.
Which one to buy??? Thinking very hard... which one to buy???
Where is the treasure
At the same bazaar, Willie participated in a treasure hunting competition with us. Although we didn’t win..... Willie finally found the treasure! J
Willie’s visit to the park:
Since he has arrived at our home, Willie is a regular visitor at our local park. You can watch him enjoying the rides and with his new friends.

Mr. Piper's Questions for his students in Milwaukee, WI, USA:
Based on these pictures, let's think about the following questions:
1. Based on your knowledge of India's land and climate, and especially the monsoons, why do you think water reserves are important to the people in India?
2. What is a bazaar? What might a bazaar be similar to in Milwaukee?
3. Why does Willie seem to have such a good time at the park?
