Rush hour, Union Station, a busy Thursday night. In the long passageway that connects the gates, a crowd is forming; a cluster of iPhones trained on the wall not far from the gold line, where I am heading.

Not sure how he reconstructed the fundamentalist scenes but aside from that this is a fantastic insight into one family in Pakistan. A great documentary.

“THE BUDDHISTS WOULD SAY that everything you need is right here, within you. There’s no need to seek outside yourself for the answers. Nothing—no place, no person—can complete you or make you happy.

And yet, occasionally, a shakeup in location, or in the company you keep, can touch you in just the right way, awaken something inside you. At precisely the moment you need it. Timing”
Lisa Napoli, Radio Shangri-La: What I Learned in the Happiest Kingdom on Earth
