We're parked at a dusty intersection in Kathmandu. After 24 hours of traveling, this is totally what I'd planned on doing. A man comes running towards the car, he flags us down. Great, another passenger, I'm sure. But he waves me out of the car and carelessly, I...

Being Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable

(1) Comments | Posted August 16, 2011 | 6:15 PM

Today, a Turkish woman in a cave took out her eyeliner and rubbed it abruptly inside the lower lid of my eye. It was sandy, slightly painful and, to my New York City mind, not appropriate. In my hometown, if a woman in a headscarf took out her makeup and...
