Iraque Refugee in Zurich

While I was walking around Zurich today for the second time I met a young man.

He was eating fruit on a nice quiet square little above Zurich. As we talked he told me that he fled from Iraque and now lives with his girlfriend in Switzerland. As I asked him if I could take some pictures he proudly presented his Papaya to me with a big smile on his face. The fled from the war left marks on him as he was very skinny and his face looked marked from what he lived through. During our short conversation he also talked about the rise of the Taliban in his home region after NATO left.
