Strange as it sounds, there are still places left on earth that have gone relatively untouched by the western world. Sure the occasional Coca-Cola bottle will fall out of the sky, but for the most part these regions remain free of Starbucks, McDonalds, cell phones, the Internet and most other creature comforts that we in the developed world accept as a part of normal life. As human progress continues its march, though, these spots will unquestionably become more rare with every passing year. But, until the world gets completely paved and Grande-sized, there's still some anthropology experiments to be had, which is exactly what went down when we gave a stack of American skate mags to a group of African kids who had never seen skateboarding before.
