BH.net: "the people you meet," children or adults

You don't ask for people to affect you. And usually you never expect it; they just do. So observe and experience Colin Mulligan, Jen Westmoreland Bouchard and Brent Katte in their recent BH publications:

universal; Jamaica; Maputo, Mozambique
1. The People You Meet by Colin Mulligan:
Anyone who's spent more than five minutes in a backpacker hostel knows how repetitive the conversation can be. For the most part, these are places where people from all over the world stop in for a few days of cheap lodging, not so cheap beer and travel advice on their destinations of choice.

Berlin, Germany
2. Berlin by Jen Westmoreland Bouchard:
I reach down to grab my dingy leather suitcase as it rattles by on the baggage carousel. Hers comes down the shoot and I look up to make sure she noticed it. She's elsewhere, staring at a "Wilkommen in Berlin" poster but not seeing it. I wonder if it was a mistake to bring her. Our relationship has never been easy and I have regrets, lots of them. They sneak up on me when we're together. I inhale sharply as I bend down to grab her small black bag and the tattered tartan fabric on the handle grazes my hand.

Siem Reap, Cambodia
3. Siem Reap: Recalibration in Indo-China by Brent Katte:
In front of the class there's a silence, a hesitation. They're positively beaming, and I'm at a loss as to why I'm trying to stifle a grin. I look down, breathe deeply, grab a hold of the moment. Why shouldn't they be happy? Why shouldn't I? How could this be awkward, this simplicity, this sharing?
