    Interesting people. The diversity of society is captured very well in your photos. Many of them remind me of how thankful I am to be alive, thankful to have food and a home and others make me appreciate their talents and differences in culture. The look on that man’s face meditating makes me want to know his peace. I have to admit I really appreciated seeing that someone has bigger thighs than me. I want to be a travelographer like my big brother when I grow up.
