The trip was amazing because we didn’t just see places; we really got to experience places. We met the local people and artisans and we learned what was important to them and their community. This is definitely something I know that I couldn’t have done on my own.
My favorite part was meeting the local artists. They told us how their designs originate and how they learned their skills from past generations and how important it is for them to pass it on to the next. Even though we come from different cultures, I discovered in many ways we are very alike.
