  "Is beautiful, no?"
by sophiebeans

Here's a girl I met on my trip named Mosha. She epitomizes the term "carpe diem!" As we were walking down the street, she suddenly decided to get her tongue pierced. She just walked into a salon and had some guy do it! Then the rest of the evening she kept turning to me, sticking out her tongue and asking in English, "Is beautiful, no?" I got a real kick out of her!
