Flavours of the world at the International Bazaar
It quickly got crowded when the University’s international bazaar opened on Wednesday. The international students treated the visitors to lots of food, music, dance and handicrafts from all their different parts of the world.
Bali dance – one of the many traditional dance styles presented during the day.
The food offered at the bazaar was for example Indian, Chinese, Indonesian and Thai.
Sothea Sor and Fredrik Stålbrand, both studying Business Engineering, mingled among the many visitors at the bazaar.
– I think this is a great day and the food is really good, says Fredrik Stålbrand after a taste of the Indonesian cuisine.
Nalini Kolar Srinivas is from India and is doing a master in Industrial Biotechnology. At the bazaar she offered handpainting, which she has been practicing for ten years.
– There is no trick to get better, just lots of practice, she says.
Chuthathip Siripong, Chanerim Maneechansook, Supansa Youngsukkasem and Supusanee Dulyakasem had made their own thai food, main courses and dessert.
Anca Marina from Romania came to Borås and the Swedish School of Library and Information Science in 2009 as a part of the Erasmus-program. Her hobby is making and selling clay jewellery.
Sweden was also represented at the bazaar. Amilia Tångne studies Textile Product Development at the Swedish School of Textiles and she sold her handmade bags, scarfs and aprons.
