This article is so wonderful that I am going to use it next week for a class that I teach. The course is qualitative research methods. Understanding cultures is a very big issues for people stateside. Even bigger is knowing that culture has many, many layers that need to be understood. This article is perfect. It has everything: ceremony, individual variation, resourcefulness and change, traditional and modern, old world and new, the impact of globalization, the impact of changing economies on definitions of wealth. I could go on forever about this.
By the way, many of us read these articles on a regular basis. So good job.
