After cycling south east Asia.

The biggest thing I felt was how strongly people live here. I almost saw everyday real life of people here through bike tour. I have been impressed how strongly they live each single day, and I was pleased that I was born in Japan where people don't face much difficulty to survive.


Each countries I went through has different situations but in most of place I went through, small town and village, people work very hard to keep stabilize their life.


All family members have different part of job on their life. There were nobody who don't work; they are helping each other.


Also, their hospitality were incredible. Most of them are welcoming strangers like me.


I can't remember how many times I got helped by their smile, especially smile of kids were giving me super power..


However, I found a big gap of life level between cities and villages.


It appeared strongly in Cambodia and Laos. There were still many places without power, gas and water. People there live in very simple.


In such place, of cause there were no public facilities such as school, so kids can't go to school.


Even If there are schools, some kids can't go because they need to help their families.


I hope at least kids can get general education and make own decision in their future.


In Cambodia and Laos, I saw many schools that have been built by other countries' funds such as Japan.


Its very good development of them, but I don't know if there are enough teachers and also education programs for teachers.


Even if they built enough school, it doesn't make big difference if there are not enough teachers and teachers who just smart and won't be able to teach right things. This is the same to Japan.


I probably go visit this area again someday. I hope I can see their big smile again and their countries moved forward.
