Walk a Mile (or have a meal) in My Shoes

As someone who is very interested in more integration in society for people with disabilities, I love this:

Heard on NPR this AM about a restaurant in Zurich called the Blind Cow where patrons dine in complete blackout, served by bartenders and waiters who are blind. It is apparently an amazing sensory experience, very popular, and other restaurants in Europe have opened with the same theme, although I'm not aware of any in the US. If you are, let me know.

Here's the link to the NPR audio, and a link to an article, and another article.

What a great idea - and what a good lesson for all of us about experiencing things from others' point of view.

It was extremely interesting for me to read the blog. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to them. BTW, try to add some photos :).
