    Love these photos. If I had my way, I would make it part of every ones education in the west to see examples of life from all countries since photography has been there to document it. The effect is quite powerful with children, who except the diversity, see alternative culture without fear, and understand this world a lot more, become much better educated adults less likely to go along with this deliberate non stop planetary culture of war.
