Let the world change you... and you can change the world.

"Let the world change you, and you can change the world."
-The Motorcycle Diaries

When they started their journey through Latin America, neither of them knew how much the world would change them. They opened their eyes and ears, and took in everything around them. They didn't see themselves as being different from the people around them. Even though they were Argentine and the others were Chilean, Peruvian, indigenous or what have you, Ernesto and Alberto saw their sameness more than their differences.

Lepers were embraced, literally and figuratively, because they were humans. They were people with stories to tell, whose lives had just as much value as the next guy. One by one, relationships grew, and hearts were changed.

Ernesto and Alberto were not afraid to see nor to listen, nor to let the world change them. And they did change the world.
