She thought you were very impressive!
This is what you added today:
Monday, February 5th (the fiftrh) 2018
How does the service work ?
To join the association, the employees need to bring a long wooden crate, two bicycles and twenty rupees (=the Indian currency) to pay for the uniform.
The sercice has developped (they deliver 400 000 meals everyday) so they need new technologies (you can text/sms them or log on to their website if you want to order a delivery.)
For Thursday 5/02: rapporter le poster, revoir

Here is today's lesson:
Friday, February 2nd (the second) 2018
The dabbawala service
The dabbawalas deliver 200 000 meals every day. There are about 5000 employees who are illiterate (= they can't read or write) and don't use any technology. However, the service is very accurate, they only make one mistake/error in a million thanks to a code (colour + number).
The dabbawalas service started 128 years ago, in 1890 and they only use bicycles, local trains and hand-drawn carts.
For Monday 05/02: réviser la leçon.
