The Ridha family show no obvious signs of the terrors that have brought them here. This may be because what distinguishes them from other travellers is what they are missing: not only major gaps in their children's education, but also the sound of the voice of one of their young daughters, which has not been heard since she hit her head on a window during an explosion. Perhaps their most prized possession at this moment is a slim folder of documents containing their visas from the Australian Government. Saleem grasps the folder as he and his family walk out into their new life, pushing their trolleys into the arrivals area. After a few steps they notice Bujairami's banner and head towards it, a reassuring moment in this strange place.
