Mark Twain

snapshots of Thailand

How has living abroad for three years in East Asia affected me?  I’m not exactly sure all the ways and don’t think I’ll fully realize the impact this time has had upon my life until after I am away from China, but I believe time will tell that it has profoundly influenced my worldview.  Only time will tell, but in the meantime Mark Twain put it this way:

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.  Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one’s little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
