    Great pictures and an amazing story. So interesting.

  16. Moving post. It saddens me that slowly certain cultures and traditions that were once rich and full of promises are slowly dying. Modernism can be a two edge sword.

    Ja du Otto…det är en sorglig historia, en sorglig och tyvärr världsomspännande tragedi.
    Har sett och hört berättas liknande i många länder…vi människor förgör oss själva och den jord och de rikedomar som vi borde värna, som vi borde högakta och framför allt dela med oss av.
    Men tyvärr, tyvärr är det så sorgligt, så destruktivt att jag snart inte kan se det ljusa…men jo, det kan jag när jag ser och tar del av dina inlägg, dina berättelser från världens alla hörn.
    De flesta andas hopp och livsglädje, även hos människor som lever i de svåraste förhållanden…
    du ser och du förmedlar…jag uppskattar verkligen dina ord och bilder.
    De tar tag, de ställer frågor…får de några svar?
    I´ll be back…see you…du är en riktig människa…en hel människa.
