The scenery flying past, the hills and barns and cows, were just the sort of things you keep coming across through a train window in the States.

19. "Dupa cum se pare, demnitatea vietii omului nu a fost prevazuta in planul globalizarii. Nelinistea e singurul lucru care a ajuns pe culmi niciodata banuite. Este o lume care traieste in perversitate, unde unii, putini, isi contabilizeaza castigurile pe seama amputarii vietii imensei majoritati. S-a ajuns la aparitia unui biet om care apartine lumii dezvoltate si care are acces la nenumarate produse dintr-un supermarket. Si in timp ce acel sarman nefericit doarme linistit, inchis in fortareata lui de aparate si ciurucuri, mii de familii trebuie sa reziste cu doar un dolar pe zi. Marginalizatii de la marele banchet al economistilor se numara cu milioanele."

Eat interesting food. Dig some interesting people. Have an adventure. Be careful. Come back and you're going to see your country differently, you're going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You're going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It's not what Tom Friedman writes about; I'm sorry. You're going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can't get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people—Americans and Europeans—come back and go, ohhhhh. And the light bulb goes on."
Author: Henry Rollins
