Does travel make you more creative? More compassionate?Yes, if you travel with those intentions.
I was impressed by this vendor who gave us a whole schpiel on each of "his" designs. He appeared to be a craftsman, but someone told me he was just a salesman. He was good though. I bought a few pieces from him.
I have traveled quite a bit, and am using this page to record some memories. Travel is a wonderful education, expanding your view of the world, of other cultures, of the beauty of diversity.
