Rights of Passage

This lovely family from Bangladesh had just had their visa application to the U.S. rejected today.  They've been all around South East Asia (in Thailand at least 100 times!).  They obviously face challenges with patience and dignity.  It made me feel incredibly fortunate to have the ease of travel that comes with an American passport.  Her sparkly dress glittered on the pier as we waited for the long-boat to take us to our next destination.  They had me take a picture of them and wistfully suggested I visit Bangladesh next time.
