Book of the Week, Ox Travels Episode 2 of 5

Ox Travels features original stories from twenty-five top travel writers; this week we'll be featuring five of these stories.

Each of the stories takes as its theme a meeting life-changing, affecting, amusing by turn and together they transport readers into a brilliant, vivid atlas of encounters.

Sonia Faleiro describes a meeting with a young woman returning home to India after a life in domestic servitude in Abu Dhabi, and investigates the terrible conditions suffered by many foreign workers in the Gulf.
