"no habla español" aware of the language barrier broken by sharing food
I spent last week in Baja, enjoying a very mellow holiday. I met some Mexican folks who invited me to their camp. It naturally was hard to communicate, since I speak very little Spanish and their English was just as poor. However, we ate mussels they had gathered from the ocean, smoked on the fire, and that indeed was an intimate moment, shared by all, despite the language barrier.
This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is "Common Ground".
