Câu trả lời:

Quite recently I met a very interesting person from the Arab Emirates when I was going on holiday to Dubai. I was on a plane. And there was a young man sitting next to me.

At first, I was busy using my laptop and didn’t even look at him. Two or three hours later, when the battery went flat, I started looking at him secretly as I didn’t want to seem impolite. I was really bored as I had absolutely nothing to do. But I was afraid to start a conversation. You know, he was a person from a different culture, and I didn’t know if it was acceptable for him to talk to a stranger. He literally read my thoughts and initiated a conversation.

Time flew by unnoticed. He managed to keep a conversation going no matter what I asked about. Unfortunately, no sooner had we started discussing really interesting Ilife issues than the plane landed, and we had to say goodbye to each other. I wish we’d had a longer conversation as he was very interesting to talk to.

I think it was after this meeting that I started, at least, trying to look at things from a whole new perspective and accept the differences within races, cultures and religious backgrounds. Also, I understood that it isn’t that difficult to understand other cultures. People just have to communicate more, listen to each other and be more open-minded.
