The key to reaching all the places

may very well be to reach the first place.

By reaching one, you will very likely start a process capable of sending people like you, yet unlike you, to the next place over: people who have the passion to cross borders and boundaries, yet who are far closer to the local culture than you can ever be.

We need to have passion for all the places, so that we work in such a way that what we do does not limit how far the work wil tech. But we shouldn’t think only people just like us are equipped to extend the work to distant places we cannot get to.
