“The young people, they love to be curious. This is good I think.”
“Why? And why is it they always seem to laugh at us?”
“It makes them smile, because they want to learn about the foreigners. They laugh at you to get your attention, so you will take the photo or speak with them, because some they learn English. They love new things.”

Yogyakarta, Indonesia, words from a tour guide

Adventure Planning (Run Research)

Run Location Possibilities As we gear up for Clarke’s run and prepare to order the T-shirts I’ve been trying to do some research on all the places in the USA that have high populations of descendants or immigrants from all of the 21 countries we hope to launch in.  I’m also looking for places that are well known for those cultural ties.  For example, I didn’t know that West 46th St in New York, NY was dubbed “Little Brazil Street” because it is historically a commercial center for Brazilians who live and visit that area. We picked our 21 countries from the studies we did on the highest internet use, specifically social networks.  Those original 21 have changed so we will adapt.  According to Internet World Stats as of 2012 the top 20 countries are as follows (in order according to the amount of internet use):

  • China
  • USA
  • India
  • Japan
  • Brazil
  • Russia
  • Germany
  • Indonesia
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Nigeria
  • Mexico
  • Iran
  • Korea
  • Turkey
  • Italy
  • Philippines
  • Spain
  • Vietnam
  • Egypt

According to another site that I found, Epoch Times, there are 10 that use social media more than others. Those are:

  • Britain
  • USA
  • Russia
  • Czech Republic
  • Spain
  • Poland
  • Brazil
  • France
  • Italy
  • Turkey

So these are all the places where we thought we should aim his runs towards.  So far I have places like NY, NY, or E. Newark, NJ, for Brazil due to their high Brazilian population and/or culture (according to Wikipedia).  It’s really rather fascinating.  I mean, as Americans we are taught from very early on that our country is a melting pot, or maybe now more like a tossed salad, lol.  However, I don’t think it really hit home for me.  This makes it more real for me, I think. Statistics aren’t everything though, and the internet is vast.  If you know of somewhere that is culturally rich and would represent a country, any country, and is here in the USA where Clarke can run without having to acquire a visa we’d LOVE to hear from you.  Any and all suggestions are welcome.  We can’t promise to use every suggestion.  Clarke will be trying to visit as many as he can though and invites others to join him.  Even from abroad.  See your country on the list?  Want to run in your area to raise awareness and help get WTC going?  Let us know.  We will try to coordinate your runs and send you some shirts to pass out in your area too.  This is a world project after all.

Wow.  It’s good to see this.  May we all doing something so great in one action or another.   The best of us kind find the greatness in every act.

Today in Ethiopia we got to see Belay and his Hand Dug Well team in action, bringing clean water to the people in Salam Tabia Village.

Green Renaissance  posted this on Facebook and we thought it should be shared.  We all enjoy laughter and smiles…..There are those out there that are going around the world gathering smiles.  A Million Smiles is creating a documentary on smiles.  Check them out on Facebook or their webpage.

Our leadership team as of Mar 24 2014, 10 years from the day we registered the domain Mindvalley.com. I love building diverse teams. This one has people born in 13 DIFFERENT countries and is 45% female leadership. When you get people from so many different backgrounds together it forces you to communicate, think, and innovate in far more interesting ways. A team with one gender and one cultural background is like a person operating with just one part of their brain. Diverse teams on the other hand, are like operating with your full brain potential. I always bet on diversity.
