Every day as I walk out of my western-style hotel room, I take a deep breath and try to prepare myself for the day. I keep thinking that each day nothing could out do the day before, that the people, food and experiences couldn’t possibly be more amazing than what I’ve already seen.
And every evening, when I walk back into my hotel room, I take a deep breath and try to process everything that I saw, touched and tasted that day. Just when I think I can anticipate how I will react I am continually amazed at myself and the world around me.
I am learning the true meaning of ‘expect the unexpected’ – and the best part is that I’m learning to accept the unexpected, too.
