I’m so glad this piece resonated with you. And you’re right — there is a conflict in the idea of enjoying traveling in these places, where so many people have no escape, and stay tethered to this reality because that’s the only way they can survive.
I don’t really have a solution, except that I think it’s better to see these problems firsthand. Maybe when we see them for ourslves, we’ll notice some small way we can help. Maybe we can at least spread the word. If nothing else, we can listen, and do our best to understand.
