This is the best kind of voyeurism, hearing joy from your neighbors.
~ Chuck Sigars,
This video has made the internet rounds for well over a year. We watch it regularly at our house and often trace some or all of the journey on a map or the globe. It's a fantastic way to travel the world in a few minutes.
But it is more than that. It has a power and a lesson that goes deeper. It shows people from countries and cultures all around the world, who look a lot like us and our friends, dancing, joyfully, acting silly, grinning at the opportunity to be a part of something larger than themselves and make a connection, both local and global. It never fails to make me and my kids smile and make us feel connected to everyone else who has grinned and danced with the video on the computer.
