Here's something that made me smile: Nigerian man's first experience of snow. I remember university with the Malaysian students there playing in the snow at 2am. Just sheer happiness at seeing frozen rain.
When I was at school we had two Jamaican brothers that came into the class.
On their first day we were having a lesson with a very austere Housemaster that was a stickler for discipline, no one took any liberties with him.
During the double lesson it started to snow and in no time there was a fairly good coating of snow on the ground.
Mr Vaughan surprised us all by suddenly pointing at the two Griffiths Boys. "you two he bellowed, have you ever seen snow before?"
"No Sir" one of them said.
"Right, get out there and I don't want to see you back in this class unless you are covered in the stuff!"
As they left the class Mr Vaughan shouted at us in his most severe tone, "what are you lot staring at ? I've given you work now get on with it"
We could see the two lads snowballing each other and having a whale of a time.
I've never forgotten that little act of kindness and from then on despite his severity he was one of my favourite teachers.
