On our way through Atlanta, we stopped at a very diverse community garden run by Friends of Refugees. It’s home to the vegetable patches of several Iraqi, Burmese, and Nepalese families, as well as a lovely Bhutanese family. We surprised them by inviting ourselves over for a home-cooked Bhutanese meal and learned a bit about their path to the U.S.
