The Stream of Life
I think most everyone's seen this little video by now, but if you haven't - it's the best 4 and a half minutes you'll spend all week, and I defy you not to well up a little somewhere about halfway through.

Matt Harding spent 14 months visiting 42 countries and did a stupid little dance in each and every one which his friend recorded. Every now and then, the locals joined in. This is the result. The music is the Indian poem "The Stream of Life" set to music.

I think my favorite are the Papua New Guinea warriors.

    I hadn't seen this, so I'm glad you shared it. Only place I've been to was the glass/mirror egg in Chicago, but I must say I liked the DMZ in Korea (odd juxtaposition, there) and how he stopped his dance and took up with the folks in India.
