5. 3 lessons I learned

5.1. Be careful when you look and judge somebody

5.1.1. for example

5.1.1.1. Samburu warriors

5.1.1.2. they look female

5.1.1.3. but they can kill lions with their bare hands

5.1.2. in the developed world, very comfortable with

5.1.2.1. prejudices

5.1.2.2. judgment

5.1.3. look closer, cause you never know what's around the corner

5.2. We all have a choice

5.2.1. for example

5.2.1.1. chukchi, Siberian eskimo's

5.2.1.2. they received apparment flats to live in

5.2.1.3. the chose to come back to their own land

5.2.1.3.1. to see their children and their old people

5.2.2. if you dare feel:

5.2.2.1. yourself

5.2.2.2. the environment your in

5.2.2.3. one another

5.2.3. you'll feel what will make you happy

5.3. By being vulrnable you can connect with people on any level

5.3.1.3. two Kazakh women

5.3.1.3.1. hugged me

5.3.1.3.2. rocked me

5.3.1.3.3. sang a song

5.3.1.4. broke down all their values to help me

5.3.1.4.1. they are a traditonal Islamic culture

5.3.2. truly becoming naked

5.3.2.1. wherever you are on the planet

5.3.2.2. as a metaphor of course

6. We have to wake up

6.1. document these culture very quickly

6.2. or we will lose them

6.3. they're our origines

6.4. we need to

6.4.1. start a dialougue

6.4.2. a new conversation

6.5. in

6.5.1. what we can teach them
