Travel photo of the day
Somewhere near Lhasa, Tibet
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
I was mesmerized by the changes in life, language, signs, mountains and everything else. In awe is the best way to put it.
And I remembered someone somewhere saying that it is best to dwell on the positives in life, the negatives will just bugger you up.
And in the long run, by dwelling on the positives, you'll be far happier in the long run with a more positive outcome.
It's almost like being afraid to travel and fly. If you worried about an accident, or death, or crashing you would never venture very far at all. And after the first flight, you learn how to avoid trees, and mountains, and other planes and become a skilfull flyer. The strongest and most skilfull hawks and eagles reach great heights and can navigate storms and predators. They dominate the landscape.
These rural Tibetan farmers were praying to have their seed and crops blessed by local Llamas so their hard work would return plenty with the harvest in the fall.
We look to Wall Street and trade figures. They look to God for their answers. Has Western man really come that far in the past 2000 years?
