I dare to critizise what you revealed in your answers to Mark.
First I find it inappropriate (also Marks way of expressing what he thinks.)
But what comes to my mind is, that you want to learn (and not teach) from the people you meet. That´s too, what my intention is in travelling.
But to learn from your own people is denied ???
I mean, that Mark has a point worth thinking of. But what I interpret out of your reaction is, that his opinion is unworthy to you.
You were reacting like your in boxing ring...or on a Judo Math (btw. I´m practicing martial arts for over 30 years)
I don´t know if there ist a story with you both, before Marks posting.
But after I read your reply, I read your books and reports with different eyes.
I don´t want to offend you, but share my thaughts, because I was kind of shocked by your reaction, it´s not what you claim as your way of behavior on your travels.
just my 2 cent, and don´t be angry that I, as a newbie on Hubb dare to share critical thaughts in your thread. You definetly have my respect.
P.S.: I registered here for the main reason, to be able to answer in your thread. (O.K. I will start a RTW trip next year ;-))
