Have disability will travel

Start here

Today, I was in the Apple store on 5th Avenue in NYC, the cacophony of languages was astounding. Spanish, English, Chinese, Japanese, Italian… It struck me that traveling allows you to get out of your comfort zone, learn about someone else’s culture, about your own, and about yourself as a whole. I found two great pictures on Twitter of Judy Heuman, the State Department’s advisor on disability rights in Mongolia, http://ow.ly/i/6RZvu and earlier this month, in Venezuela. Venezuelans http://ow.ly/BnJuC That got me thinking of my own experience traveling abroad. Back when I did it, gulp almost 20 years ago, it was a rare event. Clearly, times have changed!
