Portrait of Zaheera

There’s something special about visiting places where you can’t speak the local language. It strips you of your most basic communication tool, leaving you to rely on fundamental human connections and to establish understanding in new ways. Of course it’s also great to learn some of the essential phrases in the local language, but when you’re able to connect with someone in the absence of words, the feeling is magical.

Meet Zaheera, my friend for a moment.
