When I look at all the different leisure activities that friends do together in Asia I think many of us back in North America need to learn from, and adopt, some of these cultural practices (minus the cigarettes, of course).
Getting outside, and doing something active (well, active when the fish bite, lol), with your friend is a BILLION times better for you than sitting and watching TV or a movie, or sitting and drinking in a bar, or sitting and . . . you get the idea.
It’s no wonder North Americans are so fat (myself included, sigh) when you consider what too many of us do for ‘leisure time’ with our friends.
Something to think about . . .
