2007: This wonderful old woman in Donsol, Philippines, didn't speak a word of English, but as we were waiting for our bus, she was very interested in us. We communicated the best we could (almost entirely through gestures), and then she wouldn't let us go without taking a picture with her. She quickly became one of my favorite people. Remember that the locals may be just as curious about you as you are about them, and it's a wonderful opportunity.
