Great article, Benny. I once took a coach ride across Turkey (long story) and sat next to a nun, whose only words of English were "Manchester United". I had no Turkish. We got on like a house on fire for 3 hours using pictures on my phone and sign language and pointing out the window. She persuaded the bus driver to drive me right to the door of where I was headed (which he really wasn't supposed to).

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
