Have you ever gotten to go into a local home while traveling? Where?
In San Juan de Oriente, a predominantly indigenous community in Nicaragua’s Masaya Department, I had the pleasure of going to the home of a local man who turns volcanic rock into mesmerizing sculptures. He’s actually the only sculptor in the community, as most of the local artisans focus on ceramics. It was fascinating watching him chisel away on the rock, which he often carries (in a larger form) on his back for four to five hours from the lagoon where he sources it. I even bought a pestle and mortar for only $2!
A big thanks to @lamariposanicaragua, my Spanish school and eco-hotel for eight days, for bringing me here!
Many people don't think about their family values until a crisis arises that forces them to make decisions that may go against their beliefs.
While they may have never identified their values, all of sudden they are faced with the realization that something doesn't quite fit into what they believe in.
This is when people realize how important family values are to the structure and operation of their family system.. I have realized it already, did you?
Above picture is from Dubai, when I was taking a walk near Burj Khalifa and met these two brothers along with their wives. After interacting with them, I understood more about family, even though having different cultures we belong to this same world, world full of life, the world where people still stay together as a one big family.. #dubai ❤️ #sonyrx100iii#sonycamera#nightphotography#localpeople#locallifestyle#uae#backpackingdream#backpack#worldbestgram#worldgraphy#instagram#instagood#instaclicks
