I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too." -Hugo Cabret, Hugo
Besides the breathtaking scenery and the hospitality of the people, I am encouraged to see people with very different skills, experience, and knowledge come together to create solutions to problems big and small. Baristas sharing their skills, bike manufacturers applying their knowledge of steel, villagers opening their homes. Most importantly, they do so out of love for God, for others and for the place to which they belong.
