Un mundo globalizado
The idea of the world as a global village has become a reality as we approach the 21st century. Cultural boundaries such as language, customs and traditions seem to have become less rigid than they used to be in the past. That is why it is essential opening up the mind to embrace different life styles and cultures around the world. After all we all live in the same village, we are all neighbours!
