Marco Polo and Kublai Khan do not speak the same language. When Polo is explaining the various cities, he uses objects from the city to tell the story. The implication is that that each character understands the other through their own interpretation of what they are saying. They literally are not speaking the same language, which leaves many decisions for the individual reader.
Now it's time to move on. A visual diary of my life. Few words. A lot of pictures.
Hope you'll enjoy it.
