It was a rainy night, the crowds were incredible but at no time were they intimidating. We met 4 of the sweetest 7 and 8 year old's who were so excited to talk to us and all had an excellent grasp of English.
The ship was crowded but young people got up and offered us their seats. The people are generous, observant and attentive.

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because
of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided
to group together. This way they covered and protected
themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest
companions even though they gave off heat to each other.
After a while, they decided to distance themselves one
from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.
So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of
their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely,
they decided to go back to being together. This way they
learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the
close relationship with their companion, but the most
important part of it was the heat that came from the others.
This way they were able to survive.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together
perfect people, but the best is when each individual
learns to live with the imperfections of others and
can admire the other person's good qualities.
The Moral of the story:
LEARN TO LOVE THE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.
