Dad said the biggest difference is the lack of the middle class. He said there were people who were rich, and lived in nice houses much similar to the houses that are in America, and then you had the poor, the poverty stricken, there was no in between. It seemed either you had money, or you didn't. But it was a great experience for him and I hope that the next time he goes, I will be able to make the trip with him...
I'm actually not sure about the political stability of the region at this point, but I haven't heard whether or not they had decided to stop the mission trips, maybe I should ask someone...
