Watching @andersoncooper on @cnn recall his memories in Haiti made me tear. Made me think of all the "shitholes" who have enriched my life--who have made me wiser and stronger. @realdonaldtrump your statements embarrass us Americans who travel and live abroad. There is a world, a beautiful one, outside of your bubbles and puddles of ignorance and stupidity. Come see it!

Why is judging always a bad thing? Humans judge. It's what we do. Perhaps we can try it with a positive twist? Can't we judge and observe to learn, but not to hate and typify?

A week ago, I walked around the old market to better understand the land. It's usually the first thing I do when I venture out in a new city. What can I learn about Tanzania by people watching?

A market paints a portrait of a culture, of a land and its people--how people purchase or trade, eat and feed, communicate and bicker, negotiate and problem solve, love and hate--how people live and die

I stopped in front of this small vegetable stand and tried to better understand the city and its people. What did Kariakoo teach me about DAR?

People are content, sweet, and easy-going. People are so because they do not calculate--a bit of innocence and a bit of complacency. People survive because they share, love, and forgive. Unlike India, a businessman will try to set a price for a product, and then will give into your demands. Take it, he may say. If you are happy, I will make it work. People work to live. They do not live to work. In DAR, people know how to live

Bhakti is trying to make connections and observations from what is before your eyes. Bhakti is learning to see beyond what's visible. There are things that one can only see with the mind. Bhakti is observing and judging to learn and love, but not to hate and oppress. Bhakti is learning how to live--for there is more to life than money and power. There is peace and happiness. There is satisfaction
