Holmes Cultural Passport Program

Each month we’ll be exploring a new country! February – we’re heading to India!
For February, the spotlight country is India. 
Here are five fun facts:
– India has the wettest inhabited place in the world (Mawsynram).
– India’s Chenab Bridge is the highest rail bridge in the world.
– India was the first country to mine diamonds.
– Around 70% of the world’s spices come from India.
– India has 22 recognized languages, and the world’s second-largest population of English speakers (behind the U.S.).
