Humans are so weird ... as I get off the phone speaking in #Spanish , I met this random guy today who just got back from #Mexico and he was telling me how astonished he was at how modern and beautiful it was. Then without me asking, he then went on to state "I thought it would be dry desert and a bunch of hustlers running around but they it all!" In my head I'm like Duhhh!!! Then I asked, "So if you thought that about that place to begin with, why would you want to even go there?" ... Then I jokingly but seriously say "Well I'd hate to know what you think about #Africa .. (which too has all the malls and everything)
I just can't believe that people's perceptions in 2018 are still affected by how they've been brainwashed to believe about conditions of other countries.
Granted it was his first time going out of the country but still ... really?? Dry desert and hustlers!!??!! 🤦🏾♂️ Moral to the story, go travel y'all! The world is a BIG BOOK, and the ONLY WAY to read it (and get rid of ignorance) is to TRAVEL IT!!! #TravelTheWorld #LiveLife #SeeMore #PlanAnEscspe #ThisIsPanama #PanamaPanama #IndigenousCultures #ViajeAPanama
