... a candle and placed it in a ceremonial box. I could not understand any of the singing but none the less it was a serene beautiful moment that I felt grateful to be a part of. I haven't done much travel prior to this year, and was not exposed to many different cultures as a child but I love learning and experiencing other cultures even if I am just a fly on the wall.
