27+ Photos That Celebrate The People Of Different Cultures Around The World And Their Diversity

There's no greater time than the present to remind yourself of the people of different cultures around the world and celebrate the rich contrasts of the people of planet earth. Even with over 6 billion of us on the planet we are all still uniquely individual. People from different cultures are most likely to differ with respect to their customs, traditions, appearance and diversity. Anyone encountering another culture has certainly experienced this.

Because there are many different cultures and ways of living, that's what makes life so interesting. It's not about being the same, but about being multifarious. What's normal for us might seem very strange to different cultures.

And vice verca.

That's not to say that, underlying our different ideas and practices and ways of living, we're all similar in terms of how we think and feel, how we all have families and worries and hopes. But what makes the world so interesting is the variety of different cultures. No matter what country you visit, it never feels the same as home.

Be that the way we dress or work or live. These pictures below illustrate the cultural differences, from Siberian children enjoying a bloody meal of reindeer to Sikh bikers or female soldiers in North Korea.

As David Attenborough said on his opening narration for Planet Earth "A hundred years ago, there were one and a half billion people on Earth. Now, over six billion crowd our fragile planet." But even so, there are still places on the planet where varied cultures flourish without our full knowledge. People from different cultures are unique.

In an article by Buzzle.com titled 'The Different Yet Surprisingly Similar Cultures of the World' they sum civilization up nicely by saying "One's culture is an amalgamation of so many different elements like history, art, cuisine, language and many other tangible and non-tangible aspects. Studying a single culture in-depth requires immense effort and time to fathom the core values and fundamentals." And so it is for all of us.

Take a look at the rich assortment of humanity in the pics below.
