"Change of place imparts new vigor to the mind."
~ Seneca ~
We don't have to travel far to have an international experience. We can go to a Chinese spa, an Indian movie, a French restaurant, and a Mexican grocery store, and each of these is authentic in its own way. We get the flavor and the feeling- the language, the colors, and the foreign point-of-view.I appreciate that. I love other cultures. All of the customs and attitudes fascinate me and enrich my world. So when I get a hankering to travel, I have only to seek out the right local spot, and I can get my fix and expand my world- right here... in my own backyard.
I enjoy the rich international heritage that is the modern global culture.
