a Leech is a small blood sucking creature, a Leach on the other hand is a small componant of a ships sail.

thanks for pointing out the similarity though I'd never noticed before.

I plan on retiring to the Philippines in 13 years. Due to the hot, humid weather over there I plan on working on becoming a full time barefooter. Mostly to toughen up the soles of my feet, as well as the other health benefits that were mentioned on the web. It will be beneficial as well as challenging during the rainy season walking barefoot on muddy trails (to avoid a lot of slipping and sliding your feet have to work harder to stay upright). Also walking barefoot on muddy trails avoids the chance of losing your flip flops in the mud.

"I plan on retiring to the Philippines in 13 years. Due to the hot, humid weather over there I plan on working on becoming a full time barefooter."

When I see a "foreigner type" person in the Philippines (maybe a Kano) walking around barefoot in the Philippines I first think he is a down and out bum! Didn't know being barefoot would benefit their health! Now I am really confused because I see so many Filipino citizens wearing shoes everywhere!

I don't like crunching big cockroaches and stepping in dog poop with shoes on - I would go crazy doing this barefoot! "You are a better man than I am Gunga Din.." (Kipling.)

Years ago i did travel with a Barefoot person overland to India, in Pakistan he repaired his trowsers nur still walked without shoes, in India he soon got himself some sandals (to much shit and garbage in the streets).

In restaurants in the USA, you must wear shoes to enter. It's the law. "No shirt; no shoes; no service" signs are on all the restaurants.I guess you could carry a pair of flip-flops to slip on so you could eat . . . or go to a drive through.

Not sure why not wearing shoes is such a big deal. You either wear them or you don't; your choice. Do whatever is most comfortable for you.
