Latin indigenous people

Real backpacking will not only teach you a lot about yourself but about cultures of other countries from completely different perspective. My backpacking through South America taught me a lot about local people, Latin indigenous tribes, their customs and traditions, their way of life. I would like to share with you some photos catching spontaneous moments of their lives and their culture. Photos of people who don´t need a lot to be happy and satisfied. Photos of people who lead completely different way of life than many of us do. People from who many of us should take example. Photos of Latin indigenous people.

Nowadays, many of us are spoilt. We have a lot but always want more and more. We are chasing for more money, better salaries, promotion at work. And very often we forget to appreciate what we have. Good health, loving family, supportive friends, roof over our heads. We take all these things for granted which is not right. During my travels (especially through South America) I met so many people who did not have almost anything but in spite of that they were happy with that little that had. We should take an example from such people and start enjoying our life with everything it gives us and offers us. Stop chasing for future, start enjoying present!
