The world is a mystical place. Many people I know are geocentric; there is nothing outside the borders of the USA. I personally have always been interested and embrace the world outside the borders of my home country, yes the USA has much to offer… but so does our brethren on foreign shores. I have only had the chance to travel beyond the borders of my home country once, thus far… but I love to send and receive packages from my friends in their home countries and continents. Today I received such a package from a friend and fellow blogger Jo, the package contained many goodies from Africa. I received Rooibos Tea from South Africa, as well as dried beef, and fruit, coins from Namibia and the Sudan, beautiful shells, rocks, and crisp bread… all items that are new to me and I can not wait to try, and cherish. This made my day so much brighter, Thank you so much Jo!
If anyone else out there would be interested in a similar cultural exchange… I am always in!
