Kiwi Shaun Ruffell and Latvian Indrai Ozolinai, both Deaf, are reunited at Auckland International Airport, three years after meeting at the 1989 World Games for the Deaf (in Christchurch). Since their first meeting, the pair have kept in touch through letters, which had to be translated from English to Russian then Latvian, and vice-versa. Indrai has returned to New Zealand for 3 months, and Shaun shares his delight in having Indrai back in New Zealand again.
