I for one believe that the simpler your life is the happier you are.
These people probably are happier because they don't have the stress of paying bills or getting to work on time or any of the hassles that come from
liveing in the "more civilized" world.
My mom is constantly telling me how much better life was when she was young and lived on a farm. They were poor but happy, simple times. Story
telling by my grandmother was a big source of entertainment or swimming in the nearby river after a day of farm work.
I don't think these people are ignorant. We may be the ignorant ones for subjecting ourselves to fast paced lifestyles that put constant pressure
and strain on us.
I bet these poor people could teach us a thing or to about how to care about each other and what really counts in life.
