A portal is a gold shipping container equipped with immersive audio and video technology. Enter and come face-to-face with someone in another, distant portal and converse live, full-body, making eye contact as if you were in the same room.  

From Monday, May 2 through Friday, May 13, 2016, have a 20-minute conversation with someone in Isfahan, Iran; Herat, Afghanistan; Mexico City, Mexico; and Kigali, Rwanda. Each of these portals have translators so language is not a barrier.

NOTE: When you sign up for a 20-minute slot, you MUST arrive 5 minutes early.
