I would be lying if I said I didn’t dream of living in France or Italy, but yesterday I was content to explore my suburban American town. I rode to our downtown area on my vintage Canadian bike then I explored our bike trail for a little bit. One of my favorite activities is just getting on my bike and exploring (a wanderlust gene I no doubt got from my Dad). As I rode around, I noticed new murals that had been painted, watched enthusiastic children run to get free bread from the bakery, and heard about 5 different languages being spoken (I love how multicultural my town is). Especially in America, it can be easy to get caught up in the ease of taking the car, the consumer culture aided by megamalls, and the convience of chain restaurants, but if you take the time you can uncover a whole new world in your community. I challenge you to explore your town, whether it be in Vietnam, India, or the USA, because we really do live in a beautiful world that deserves to be seen. Feel free to comment below something you love about your town or your favorite part of your culture.
