Description

Sometimes we learn things from the least expected person and just when we least expect it. When a woman visits a foreign country for the first time and heads out to the bazaar to purchase a gift for her host family, the host's son joins her to act as interpreter. The boy teaches her enough common phrases to allow her to communicate with the vendors, and not get swindled, but it isn't until she trips over an old crone selling wishes, that she learns the most valuable lesson of all.
