  1. Wow is an understatement! I’ve done some traveling in my life and we North Americans tend to take it for granted how well we really have it.

    I encourage everyone to do a bit of traveling off the beaten path – it’ll open your eyes to what’s really happening in the rest of the world.

  2. Not to sound flippant, but it reminds me of hayrides we used to do as kids on the farms. But seriously, we are very lucky here in the USA for most of us to have better modes of transportation than that!

  3. Well… we have to think two times before start to complain, but I think that we have what our country give to us because we pay for it… by taxes every day, including at every galon of gas.
