The Importance of a Good Connection

The story is told of a native from a remote mountain village in the jungle, who had the opportunity to visit a large modern city for the first time. He was amazed at all the bright lights and technology. He stayed and worked in the city for a number of months, saving up as much money as he could so he could bring back some of the modern comforts to his primitive village.
