Why I do what I do...

I know that to many or most it seems like I (we) live in Paradise. We pass our days on sun drenched beaches, sip margaritas and are overall happy with life. I have been told so many times that I have a "dream job" and how lucky I am. I do feel I am fortunate to be able to help provide for my family but there is another thing that I do... It is VERY rewarding but certainly not so easy.

I visit "my" towns, where I take my tours but these towns are also where my family live. They have good lives in a certain sense, but they are struggling to make it, just to survive. I do what I can, ask for donations here and there and try to give them to who needs them... But the needs are many, and for every one person or village we help there are dozens, hundreds, thousands more in need. I get attached, deeply and emotionally attached and to be honest it is something I struggle with. It is hard, taxing and sometimes exasperating but here are some of the results of YOUR efforts to help. It has been a good season for me and for them. Thanks to each and everyone of you...
