How was the trip?

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live.<>

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.<>

On their return from the trip, the father asked his son,<>

“How was the trip?”<>

“It was great, Dad”.<>

“Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked.<>

“Oh yes”, said the son.<>

“So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.<>

The son answered:<>

“I saw that we have one dog and they had four.”<>

“We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek that has no end.”<>

“We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.”<>

“Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.”<>

“We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.”<>

“We buy our food, but they grow theirs.”<>

“We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”<>

The boy’s father was speechless.<>

Then his son added:<>

“Thanks, Dad for showing me how poor we are.”<>
