This story include four story, all of these are African story.
I like the first one and last one.
One man met one girl on plane, and the story start is first one.
The last story is success story about one bald man.

The first one is sad story.
The girl may be similar to my age , so I can imaginate her feelings.
was impressed by her last act.
The bald man's story will encourage many people who confused about bald. ( )
