I just moved to a small village in Guatemala and I could not agree more with this article. Well written, well expressed, well done!

I hyperlinked to it from my recent blog post about ‘experiential awareness” or rather, first world travelers who go to third world countries and simply…don’t get it.

The greatest cultural difference I notice here is that despite the shocking poverty levels and unfortunate circumstances, people are kind, generous, and positive! All the time! What a lot we have to learn.
