Aside from being something entertaining to read, I hope my posts give you a glimpse into the lives of the incredible people I have met. Things may be very different here from what I'm used to, but like me, the people I encounter have families and friends as well as hopes, dreams, and goals for the future. It's always possible to find something in common with other people, sometimes you just have to look a little harder and dig a little deeper! And when all else fails, or when you don't speak their language, play some some music and dance. Trust me, it always works.
