I, plural

I hold my face in my hands. A long, strange sound comes from me. I’m embarrassed. We’re out in the open; there’s no place to retreat to. I lag behind and stay close to a low stone wall.

I’m in North Korea, two hours from its capital by car, at an ancient Buddhist temple dating back to the 11th century.
