The attitude of the Swazi people

I am struck by how friendly and polite these people are with each other. It seems like the relationships are the most important thing to nurture. It’s not about the task necessarily. They greet everybody they pass, whether they know them or not, so unlike the U. S. The other thing I noticed is how content these people are with their situation. They smile so easily, both young and old alike. Time seems to stand still. I purposely didn’t bring a cell phone or watch, and I have no idea what day it is or what time it is, and for once in a very long time, it just doesn’t matter.
