Hiro has a way about him. A way that when he is walking around with his camera, people just walk up to him and ask to have their photo taken. It’s quite a curious but regular occurrence and it happens everywhere we go.
Hiro met Mehmet when we were in Turkey. We were on a road trip to Pamukkale when we made a quick stop to use the conveniences of a nearby cafe, when Mehmet started talking to Hiro. The language barrier was a bit of a trouble but we are quite certain that he wanted to show him his gigantic watermelons of which he was viably very proud of.
Little exchanges with people on our travels is always such a precious privilege for us. I am so happy that locals find Hiro so approachable.
