I was thinking about it after seeing that video of the kid in traffic in Turkey! Has anyone here been to a very, very different sort of country from your home country? For example any Americans gone to countries in Eastern Europe? Asia? India? Africa? South America? Gone to a home country of your ancestors, or your spouse's ancestors? What was it like? What sort of experiences did you have, and how did you feel about it? What differences from your home country, did you see? How did it make you feel about your home country? I don't have any 'agenda' in asking, I just thought it would be interesting to hear people's experiences. It's been a long time since I traveled, but I did some time ago, travel a lot. I found other very different countries fascinating, but I was always very thankful to come home.
