A woman stands in the rain as she watches traffic in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Horns were consistently honking and beggars startled me as they knocked on the window of the door on which I leaned my head. I looked up and across the street to see this woman standing there, seemingly calm and managing the sensory overload, waiting patiently for the right time to cross to the other side of the street as the “bumper buses”, packed to the brim, anxiously waited their turn to move a foot or two.
