things i'm grateful for:

i'm grateful for the many friendships i have developed with people all over the world. i travel a lot, so it is always good to go somewhere and have friends that can hang out with you-- or even show you around their city. it makes your travel that more personal.

but more than anything else, having friends from all over the world enriches your perspective of the world. for example, in the mid 1990s... i met my friend mirza from bosnia. prior to our friendship, i knew nothing about that culture. today, i know more than i ever thought i would. all because of my friendship with one person.

i encourage you all to have as much friends as possible from as many different countries as possible. really, it changes your life for the better :)
