Tent Vs. Pub
It was all quite pleasant.
Later, at one of our stops, someone wanted to know "what's the deal" with people living in tents, are they just there, comfortable, not really moving on with life?
As I walked away with my friend, he made an interesting observation. "The people at Tent City were personable, honest, open. There was a sense of community."
We agreed. Why don't we get that same feeling of community everywhere? Could it be that some people are stuck where they're at, despite being able to throw down $30 for drinks every night?
