We arrived at our home stay today in the hills of rural Thailand. Currently I’m under a mosquito net writing this. Things in the village are very tightly knit and everyone relies on each other for basic human needs. The collectiveness and community nature is something you really never see in the States unless you are to go to a sustainable community of some sort. We tend to live very distant from one another. One of the things I took away from the village was a sense of family and how we have different lives but everyone can connect in some way.
