I spent my junior year of college studying abroad in London, and she was my roommate, a first-year originally from Singapore. She had already studied one year in a very prestigious and high-pressured Singaporean university, but during her final exam, she threw down her pencil and marched out of the test room. She had enough. She yearned to dance--away from the "concrete city," she said--and she bought a one-way ticket to London. That spring, we spent our student savings on a trip to Morocco; this shot was taken at sunset while we were camping in the Sahara desert...and she started to dance and dance and dance.
