A note on 'A glimpse in the thoughts of...'


"A glimpse in the thoughts of..." is my attempt to paint a picture of the people that I meet as I'm traveling.  I always enjoy hearing about the characters that others come across on the road, as well as telling people about cool people I meet; this tries to keep a record of those individuals' voices and adds a visual component to put a face to the story. The concept is this: a few questions are presented that aren't questions you would normally ask people (a la "If you could kiss anyone, who would it be and why?"), I take a picture of the person, and I post the responses, with permission of course. The hope is to elicit some interesting replies that give a look into how people from different parts of the world respond to these questions.

This may end up being not particularly interesting, but I am going to give it shot. For a few examples, I did a profile on my mom, my host in the Peruvian countryside, a doctor that helped me ton in Puno, Peru, and my Couchsurfing host when I was in Barranquilla, Colombia.

That said, I need help with the questions.  Leave a comment with an interesting question! (Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.)

I like this idea! Interesting question that I've been asking principals/school directors at the end of interviews, "What are you most proud of about your school?" This can of course be replaced by your farm, your family, your life, your city, your country, etc. I've gotten interesting and quite varied responses

Ok, so I know it sounds super corny, but it's totally a legit question that yields insight into people.

"What is love?" or some derivation on a similar subject. it can get some people talking for days.

By the way, what you're doing is awesome, I wish i had the huevos.
