My parents always encouraged us children to step out and try new things and leave our comfort zone. We were taught that unusual tastes, smells, sights and sounds were things to learn from and enjoy, not be scared of. I really appreciate all they did to help prepare us for traveling in different cultures. I’ve experienced a lot of new stuff this month. 🙂
Today I thought I’d give y’all a few more glances at the market place. Some of the pictures are blurry because I was trying to take pictures without being too noticeable, and so focusing wasn’t always easy.
We only have today, tomorrow and the next day here, then we’re leaving on the day after that. It’s amazing how fast this time has passed by, and yet how long it feels like we’ve been here. We have been here long enough that I’ve really settled into a routine and I’m going to miss the life here a lot when we go back home.
It’s fun for me, as an author, to go to new places and try new things. It seems like everything I do will some how, some day in the future, help me be a better writer. So far, I haven’t come up with any plot-lines that take place in Asia, but I have no doubt that when my mind is finished working on my current projects, brainstorming ideas will come flooding in.
What about you? Do you like trying new things? What are some of the interesting experiences you’ve had?
