A young companion

Dushanbe, Tajikistan

Evening of February 14, Saint Valentine’s Day, it’s been raining for hours in Dushanbe. City dwellers are hiding in chaykhonas or under bus stop sheds. A school boy holding a bouquet of yellow and red flowers joins us in a taxi car. He can’t wait to reach his destination and hand the bouquet to someone he loves.
