Different but similar

Normal is a relative term

Spending time in another country

Brings that home

Forcefully

Language

Diet

Customs

Skin colour

Height

Are some of the factors

That emphasise difference

And can make you feel dislocated

Good will, patience and a smile

Can encourage relationship

And dialogue

To emphasise our shared humanity.

It is slow,

But worthwhile things

Take time
