Finally have somewhat OK wifi.

all I can say is that I am surrounded by tribal villages where young children see you and run out of their homes or yards yelling saibadee.

These tribal mountain villages are unfortunately disappearing fast in these modern ages.

I urge you to go out and see the last refuge of what real humans once were.

Otherwise, all you will get is pictures on the internet.

Greetings. It was a short few days ago on the CBC, I was listening to a radio documentary about the Amazon tribal village (name escapes me) of a tribe of people who would hide or shoot you with an arrow through the heart. Lately though They are appearing more and more on the Amazon river banks. Tourist boats are coming into contact. These lost tribes are losing their fears and want metals and stuff they can't get out of the rain forest. The Government has concerns that diseases passed can wipe them out. I'm of the mind to leave them alone.

I see banana trees, nice climate. I'm sure there's some kick ass herb growing wild there if you like to hike.
It should be flowering now.

That translates as "rape and eat the stranger".


Just sayin...

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

It's interesting to note that some of the isolated villagers embrace tourism (as in the gibbon experience) as a way of protecting their ecosystem, their home, while others are still unfriendly. I wonder if the unfriendly villagers are aware of the gibbon experience enterprise?

I can't believe you would chose such a country over the cold, windy and dreary climate over here that builds character if nothing else

This instant world wide access modern technology blows my mind away and oh by the way hello from Massachusetts (*-*)

Compared to around a hundred years ago where and when letters and post cards and sailing ships took weeks and months to cross the planet to reach each other...

I did a check up in the atlas where exactly Finland is. Finland shares the same longitude as Alaska and Iceland. The Arctic circle cuts through Finland. I can see why internet speeds are uncapped. I don't think that would make me wanting to move there in a flash. That being said, no doubt the people are warm and the scenery out of this world.

A well kept secret Finland is quite warm for the latitude due to the Gulf of Bothnia and Baltic sea which is heavily influenced by the Gulf Stream. The climate is not bad at all, and the people are second to none.
