With Love from Suriname

I was walking from one part of the city to another to buy a Suriname beef sandwich.  The guy serving the food had just lost his wife. He was relating the story to another customer.  I listened. It was in Dutch, so the bits and pieces of Afrikaans I could pick out were the only bits that broke my heart.  The rest just LOOKED sad.  Within minutes though, there were about 6 people listening and they all ended up laughing. Hugging and laughing. Just like in the movies.

He was placed right there to make magic.

And he was.
