The strangers waving back at me seemed as though I had made their day as they exploded with happiness, all it took was a simple wave from a random truck passing by.
It is simple things like this that make this expedition worthwhile. I have realized that with all the illness, hunger and poverty here, people are genuinely happy. I can’t help but to think if even a single person back home would have waved to a passing car with such enthusiasm.
Never underestimate the power of the wave.
