The Head Bobble

Organization: Naturellement Garden Cafe

Location: Auroville, South India


Date:  7 January 2016

One of the waiters was taking an order from a group of tourist who had found the Café by chance. A man from the group began to ramble off a list of items he wanted to order for everyone. The waiter did not have a pen or paper in hand. While he was talking she began to bob her head from left to right. He looks at her a bit bewildered and asks if she would like for him to repeat it. She shakes her head left and right again and points to the items in the menu without saying anything and waits for their confirmation.  Obviously this women did not speak any English, but she knew the procedures for taking an order.
