... The aftermath
After about a minute, I heard someone calling out to me. I stopped, turned around and there was one couple from our proposed tour group this morning.

We spoke about issues at the same level, most of us shared the same intellect, and conversing with them came to me as easily as it would with my friends back home. No one was superior, no one was inferior. The French girl wasn't rude and the Chinese weren't cold. The American didn't think the world of himself or his country.
