far too much writing, far too many photos

An addition to the last entry:

As I sat in el Restaurante Bogotá, a man and woman came in and sat near me, both appearing to be in their mid- to late-20’s — him tall, business-suited, her short, slim, in a pantsuit, hair pulled severely back, wearing glasses of a severe, thick black-framed design. She mostly exhibited no expression, which combined with her looks to render her umremarkable.

They ordered, they talked some, their food came. And as they began to eat, their conversation seemed to flow a bit more smoothly, until something in the exchange produced a sudden smile on her face. That moment transformed her, a contained, plain-looking individual abruptly becoming a woman whose unique beauty was clearly displayed, radiantly apparent.

A smile — a simple smile, truly felt — can be unbelievably powerful.
