Now I remember why I majored in Spanish...

BOY do I love all Spanish speaking and influenced cultures...they are honestly some of the best people I ever met...warm, GENUINE, REAL, AUTHENTIC, depth...sincerity...

Yup, if I could choose any culture to be I'd probably choose something in the Latin/South America region...they have the looks, the food, the music, the rich and colourful culture...not to mention an amazing respect for women!

Not sure what is going on but maybe my stark monocultured environment is getting to me...either that or I'm starting to appreciate my asian roots...

I think though that my character would be a trifecta of three cultures: the European(most like Germany), the Asian(most like the Japanese) and the Spanish influenced (most like a Mexican, or maybe an Argentinian or Chilean...

Anyway apparently I need to get to Thailand...apparently that's the halfway meeting point offered by my Euro friends that don't want to come here...

I think the landscape alone is worth it...but I guess if you don't like nature and photography it's not that appealing...I would have thought it'd be interesting just to experience a completely different culture...but then I guess we're not THAT exciting compared to other parts of the world with more colourful cultures and much older histories&cultures that still prevail today.
