I came to Newfoundland Canada 3 years ago from Asia as an international student. Through the years I have called Newfoundland my new home, and made my best friend here, Robert Tilley, a 73-year-old Newfoundlander. In this photo, Robert was standing on the edge of the sandy and curving shore of St. Vincent’s, facing the calm water. The calm water in Newfoundland always reminds me of home where I was born and raised. I guess it is because there is a big river in my hometown, and both the river there and the water here sometimes share the serenity.
