Open Sesame

Open Sesame. Only a few may know the secret of entering treasure caves. Even just the treasure of communicating in the same language. The password for all that we are after.

The password Ali Babba used to open the treasure cave in the stories of 1001 night. It felt life closed its caves this week. But my neighbour is an ancient story teller with Persian roots. In her house she had a tile of the lady that seduced a man not to kill her because she was such a good story teller. Today it reminded me that it can take a while before caves of understanding are opened. But slowly learning to grow out of the isolation in a new country. Where Europe sometimes feel all about having the passport, here it seems like having the right passwords. Who can teach me?
