I just wanted to pop in quickly to share the article I found from the New York Times. The author details her experience travelling to Southeast Asia (lucky!) with their baby. She really nails it on describing how a baby draws you into a culture. While our experiences haven’t been quite as extreme as there’s, the similarity is there.

The moral of the story? Take your baby with you! It’s awesome!
