Shanghai, China. These people that I present you have the "extraordinary" capacity of being partially or totally blind. And they are extraordinary considering that they live and survive among 20.000.000 citizens that also live in the same city.
Along my busy life, I've suffered several breaks and accidents, so from time to time my body requires some adjustments. After asking a friend of mine, she recommended me this place expecting it to be special... as it certainly was. I understood on my own skin how the blinds can read and see through their hands and probably through other senses that we, simple mortals, will never be able to experience and understand,
This is a tribute to these extraordinary people. God bless you all.
Special thanks to Carolyn Wang for her help.
