To experience a new country, a new language, a new cuisine, or a new garb is beyond exciting. It is first hand education using all of your senses at once. And when given an opportunity to take part in a local custom, one can only enhance one’s understanding. Trying something different allows one to appreciate the extraordinary. The following photos bring back such joy and amazement for me and remind me that all is not wrong with the world.
I realize how fortunate I’ve been to have seen so much and I am richer for having done so. I admire and respect those of you who have made a difference to these same places by doing humanitarian work while I have been the one benefiting. Maybe one of these years I will join you in your compassionate endeavors! Meanwhile, thank you.
