Her gaze is largely fixed on the distance, as if mesmerized by the strip of shimmering pavement, interspersed by the bright shots of color as the vehicles flow by. Discretely hidden somewhere close by is her bicycle, and a few bags with her belongings. She’s not alone. Across the street is the man in whose company she’s often seen riding. They seem to trade off on corners, begging for relief, and preaching the gospel in silence.
