  1. I love hearing these everyday stories that you share. Takes me out of my mid-western home and transports me to a place far away. We all have something to offer each other when we learn how each other live day-to-day. 🙂 Alexis

  3. I totally agree with you! Why do people in the western world always try to change the way everyone else lives, thinking their way is the best way? Family ties, survival skills, resourcefulness and the appreciation for nature are but a few things that are valued better in non-western countries and I sometimes believe happiness is among those as well.
