When planning a trip its always fun to take a few hours and research some of the history and culture that shaped the place. A little insight can help you understand what you are seeing and why things are the way they are presently. Our way of living isn’t always the “right way” or “best way” its just Our way, so don’t be too quick to judge and remember that most of these places have been around a lot longer than us and seem to be doing just fine!
