Though we live in different countries, far from each other, we gather once or twice a year. We grew up together, studied at the same secondary school and quite simultaneously, we had early marriages, changed husbands and boy friends.

They are also well-to-do people with creative professions, making good money.

It is me in a ‘break dance’ attraction,
with breath-taking-away turns, rises and downs rolling.
