I saw blissful simplicity in their food as well as their culture. The locals appeared perfectly satisfied with a few small belongings compared to America where we have an insatiable hunger so great that our small cars have become the size of their garbage trucks! It was beautiful to be engulfed in an area that lived in the moment and cherished the past.
This trip brought about unforeseen friendships and heightened my cultural awareness. I have officially caught a travel bug much to my wallet’s dismay. Having been submerged in a foreign culture has further opened my eyes to how diverse our planet really is and how easy it can be to over look it.
