America Compared to Rural Africa

We need reminders of how easy we have life in America.

Recently I purchased a pair of sunglasses with an MP3 player built in. This way when I walk, I can listen to recordings that I don't take time to hear at home. The cost was very low and the experience of others with the product has drawn praises.

Then I came across a similar setup invented by a young man in Africa. His Fedora-based power supply is nothing short of amazing. Amazing because ladies there are much more adept at using their heads for carrying loads. Amazing also that he could hook up the entire system and make it work.

How thankful I am that I live where even our music can be enjoyed with a minimum of cost and labor.
