The Kindness of Nepalese People by Ryszard Wierzbicki

Kindness of Nepalese people is unexceptional. What is astonishing when travelling through South-East Asia that poor people are more keen on sharing and showing compassion to others than wealthy people. It is very obvious in contact with poor that they are focused on “to be” rather than on “to have”. This gentleman was very kind to me.
