This weeks amazing photo essay is bought to you from Megan from Where in the World is Megan Claire? 

 

There are nearly 7.1 billion people on the planet from all walks of life, across all cultures and countries.  We so often travel abroad and focus on making it to the beach, not missing any attractions, snapping a photo in front of THAT landmark, which means we often miss the real beauty, and real culture, of each country we visit – its people.

Out of 7.1 billion, these are the 15 people from our travels that I put to you as a world portrait.
