Music From Trash: The Landfill Harmonic Orchestra

For nearly 2 years now, this blog has pretty much been about me, Me, ME. I guess that’s natural ‘cuz sharing my tales of life as an expat in a g-forsaken rice paddy is of course, what I know best. And my hope is that my blather here will in some small way inspire others to likewise follow their dreams – be it taking a deep breath, and moving half-way ’round the globe to start a whole new career (actually, I know of at least 2 TL readers who’ve done just that this year!), or… simply following your own personal flavor of bliss.

But I read a lot of travel blogs, and news stories from ’round the globe, and there’s lots more inspiring travel stories out there to share. Also, as I’m lately smitten with fiddling with videos to tell a travel tale, I just couldn’t help but share the video below. It brought a tear to my eye, and a swell of hope (in the human race) in my heart.  And I hope you’ll feel the same.


Even better – view the full-length video that tells the entire story: – Landfill Harmonic 

And furthermore…

Happy 2013 to One and ALL
from the TravelnLass!

  2. Very inspiring video! I can’t believe the rich sound that “cello” had!

      I KNOW James, that whole orchestra sounds top-notch!

      Reminds me that I hope to do some volunteer work here in Vietnam myself. Not just teach English to children of the VN upper-crust who can afford the private English school fees, but somehow reach the lowest workers in hopes of giving them a leg-up to a better future.

      Hmmm… sounds like such would make a good story for the HCMC Word, no? Any ideas? I know there’s tons of volunteer ops in HCMC, but how ’bout in places like Dalat, etc.?
