ROME - May 2013 – Roadworks in Via Bruno Bruni blow vapour from the burning asphalt, in front of me walks a slender mulatta wearing a summer dress. When she turns her head, I spot a bruised lip and a scarred nose. Yes! It is her.
The girl signs at me. I nod. She takes me to a building around the corner. Letterboxes at the entrance carry Portuguese names.
