A World of Smiles: A Personal Portarait of the World

A World of Smiles: A Personal Portarait of the World

by Jonathan Bean
     
 
The ability to smile when all you have is a few worn clothes, a patch of infertile soil and a minimum of food is a wonder of the world. I hope this collection of world portraits, collected in half a lifetime of travel in about 90 countries, captures some of that wonder. They prove maybe that the relationships that form - even between strangers - are more important

Overview

The ability to smile when all you have is a few worn clothes, a patch of infertile soil and a minimum of food is a wonder of the world. I hope this collection of world portraits, collected in half a lifetime of travel in about 90 countries, captures some of that wonder. They prove maybe that the relationships that form - even between strangers - are more important than all the material wealth and comfort for which so many in the 'developed' world strive so obsessively. A smile begets a smile, they say. I hope this collection will raise a few smiles - and a little reflection on what's really meaningful in this still wonderfully diverse world.
