Hey guys, I first wanted to say thanks to my readers. Analytics say about 200 of you guys tune in each week for my blog and that is just amazing to me. Feel free to share it with your friends if it has helped you learn something as it has done for me.
This week I have to documentaries for you all to watch over your weekend. They inspired some serious thoughts for me and I hope they do the same for you. The first one is called "When Cousins Marry" Here's what it's about:
"This powerful documentary reveals the tragic health problems suffered by children born within first cousin marriages and explores the controversy surrounding this cultural phenomenon. A disproportionate number of rare recessive genetic disorders occur amongst those of South Asian and especially Pakistani descent and the programme investigates the science, political and social consequences of marrying your first cousin."

OK, next is a doc is called "Brides for sale" and takes a look at the Kalaidzhi bride market that takes place in the southeast of Bulgaria every year. Unmarried women are often paired off with financially strong men. It's something to think about.
