The other day I was hanging out with my family when we ran into a group of polish journalists visiting Jordan for the first time. We had that interesting conversation about cultural differences, terrorism and other issues largely talked about these days.
So, we were saying how all people share common human traits, whatever their ethnicity, ideology or belief is. I was holding the book Memoirs of a Geisha, over which we had a conversation that I think sums it all up in one bubble!
Man: My wife loves this book!
Me: Yeah, it’s a very nice book
Man: So, my wife is European, she’s a member in the parliament, and you are a Muslim girl in Jordan, yet you read and like the same book!
Woman: And, after all, the book is about Japan
Me: That’s the point!
See, it’s just human!
