I'm always saying that to my friends. Well, I did read an article the other day, and it was a very interesting article. Interesting because it was about a Peruvian tribe that is very isolated with hardly any contact with civilization. They are becoming bolder and actually had killed a man that had traded with them. He was the only one who could communicate with them. I am always astonished to find that there are still tribes that are uncontacted.
The world really isn't as small as I think.
