This man from Iran sold me some cashews from his little shop in Manama, Bahrain. He was such a warm friendly person, he gave me a hug when I left.
Neat portrait. He looks like he's seen a lot.

@Lorraine: Thanks so much, Lorraine. I enjoyed your baseball metaphor.
I like your portraits! You make them human, and capture something of the person's character. This guy does look like he could talk for hours, I bet his story is fascinating.
