The modern world is a wonderous thing…

Living in the skyscraper filled developed world, it is easy to forget that most of the world lives in a poverty that we could barely comprehend…

A group of 80 people coming into a town in Columbia, after having lived for their lives in “the bush”, serves as a reminder of the difficult balance that so much of our world sits in. They are now struggling to join a society that they do not understand, to move from shooting monkeys with blowguns to a world of drive-by shootings, to face a whole new world of challenges. And it seems that the threat of communist guerillas, a rival tribe and a leader polluted with thoughts from the city, acted together to bring the most radical change that this community is likely to have seen for thousands of years.

Who knows whether the challenges of the city are better or worse than the challenges of the bush… and how could you decide anyway?
