Exploring San Andres Village Overlooking Lake Atitlan
I believe in daily improvement that we can strive to become better people throughout our lives. Therefore, we can ask ourselves, am I a better person than 10 years ago? Moving makes me happy, to travel to a new culture, then be forced to adapt, I see this as the fountain of youth. People who have decided not to change, get old, tired, and grumpy, they defend a position that to me is untenable, how to stop change, what appears to me normal, is change, but people do get tired of adapting, they will refuse to accept the inevitable need to change, and adapt, not acceptance, but almost what a young child does, to refuse to go along. Yet, to become a better person is not to follow another persons path, tourism is generally just a checklist of things to see, that others have seen, and say wow, as have most other people. For example, I am not sure why to take photos of the Pyramids, and show them to people? I did, but it is the act of following. Exploration is going where we have no idea what to expect, looking for something new, the opposite of following. I often talk about serendipitous walking, or unexpected encounters. I think maybe to tell people to explore is an easier word, and will elevate a persons social status, I don't care much about social status, but it does seems to be the meaning of life for most, the hope they don't become a nothing, to be a something, which is quite easy if we improve daily. Exploring is my default way of walking, looking at anything, to find something new, if another person recommends, then sort of lost the fun. I just cannot wrap my brain around recommended restaurants, maybe a specific recommended food. I will recommend people to slow down on talking about the weather. We go explore, then call yourself an explorer, but don't read, watch videos, or research where to explore, just walk out, and go somewhere, where you do not know. I have 3 cities on this lake to explore. So, I am exploring the difference between exploring, and travel.
