Caroline is from Kenia.
Pisces is her star sign. At the age of 12, she moved to London. That’s where she went to school. Recently she came to Doha. I met her by chance, while she was looking for the apartment in my neighbourhood. She was with a friend. We had a coffee and I took a few photos. She has infatuating energy and life philosophy. She dances salsa, goes to gym frequently, writes short stories. She loves theatre. Love is her second name.
We went out together for the first time on the St. Valentine’s day. To the salsa night. Hotel Sheraton. In Doha, people dance salsa. And tango. Every day a week, at some other place. That was one of my nicest evenings in Doha. Never in my life have I seen such radiant eyes. Full of passion. For dancing. Music and life. All of that, in her. That night she taught me how to dance. To move. To be free. To dream.
I saw her again the day after. We went to Costa cofee at the Corniche. One nice man there told us he saw us the evening before. “You’re a great dancer, you’re amazing. You too, boy!”
“You’re a great couple”, he added, leaving. We just looked at each other and smiled.
