Smile

Smile

srilanka stamp

I love to think about how universal and wonderful a smile is. No matter what your culture is, this innate facial expression carries the same deep meaning and feelings. That day, I had been cycling on a deserted road for over eight hours against a strong headwind and I was running low on water under the punishing midday sun. The truck driver who swiftly handed me that fresh slice of watermelon out of the side of his cab was now speeding away. We may not have exchanged a single word, yet our dialogue could not have been any clearer.
