Understanding

Understanding……

What is this man doing in our village? why is this man here? Where is this man going?

Questions I heard on a daily basis and questions I was approached with.

The confusion created caused panic, mystery and suspicion, and I ventured into these remote regions with a certain closed mindset, one of a western society and one that I considered to be the way things should be.

In a society where ‘please and thank you’ doesn’t exist, and where time is not of the essence. Its sometimes easy to judge people to be rude. Which in return creates frustration.

But with time comes understanding, with understanding comes patience and with patience comes a humble respect.
