“Anyone who sees me is instantly drawn to my eyes. That is mostly because I am dark-complexioned. I am from Khanaqin, but it has been many years since I came here and I work with my partner in this tea shop. Tourists visit the tea shop every day, always asking if I’m wearing contact lenses or not. One time a woman came and asked me the same question, she returned soon after and said I have looked around Sulaimani a lot to find contact lenses of that color but I have not found it.”
