Beliefs & Travel
To me travel as been a time for self reflection. A time to see how other people live and survive in this big world.
Mostly what comes to my mind when traveling is how much we are a like. Not how we are different.
While traveling on the Mekong River between Thailand and Lao I watched boats move food and product up and down the river. I witnessed children and livestock bathing in the same muddy water and thought to my self yuck.
Keeping the yuck in mind it was not long ago last summer here in New Westminster that I was witnessing the same thing. Kids swimming in the muddy Fraser.
Here in New Westminster the mighty Fraser River is key to our survival. We eat the food that comes from the river. We create houses and make paper from the logs are pulled along our mighty Fraser River. Neighborhood festivals and fire works are held along side the river just like many other people do in there home countries and towns. So no matter where or who you are, how diffrent are you really, from the person sitting or standing next to you?
