|'Hope of a nation'|
It's not the cloths that you buy. Nor the souvenirs that you bring home. When I travel, I barely spend money on such things. Instead, I spend it get places and experience. Once, in one country, we paid $45 for taxi that could mean a whole month salary for the local to get us to a remote village we wanted to see. It's the street food that we eat or the sugar cane drinks that we consume. It's the conversation we have with strangers and locals at breakfast time. It's the stories and pictures, and lessons that I get. And of course, it's the tan line that I get from sunburn. A reminder of 'been there, done that, survived' kind of thing, and I love it.
p.s : I freaking love the above photo that I took of a child in market.
