Hey! I know you. It was someone I never expect to see again at assignments.
Hello. A shy smile.
I thought you’re still in Myanmar or something. What happened?
Yeah, I was there for two-and-a-half years. But then I ran out of cash. A rather sheepish smile this time.
And now you’re back, doing business reporting again.
Yeah, back to wearing proper shoes, and tucking in my shirt. A shared laugh.

It was a very pleasant surprise to see him yesterday. Still a nice guy, still grounded. Would love to listen to his ‘war stories’ some time.
