Dec.29 – Day 13 – The train has stopped in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps they are cutting down trees for fuel.
This country is one of many contrasts. The ultra modern placed in stark contrasts to the ancient and useless.
Being old doesn’t mean that something is useless. Being “old school,” doesn’t always mean not efficient.
We watched the gem cutters use hand chisels and grinders run by thin ropes wrapped around a cylinder.
Some things and some ways of doing things will never change.
Every country has its own solutions to its many problems. That is the way that it should be.
But if a better way to do something is found don’t be afraid to try it. Perhaps it will make your life better.
