It was a crowded bridge in Istanbul. There was some kind of fishing competition going on as I ambled over the bridge watching everyone point their rods over the edge. I stopped and watched as a young boy hoisted a tiny fish from the waters of the Bosphorus about 50 feet below him and put it in a small bucket of water.
I peered into his bucket to look at the fish as he smiled at me. I smiled back at him , pointed down at the water below and held my palms apart. He grinned again and held his arms out as far as they would go, palms facing and laughed. I backed off a couple of paces and held my palm up and quick as a wink he held his up, indicating a fish about 8 feet long! We laughed together. Neither spoke a word of the others language but we had communicated , we were at one and we both knew it and enjoyed it!
