“Tthere’s nobody who’s crossed my path and I’ve thought, ‘Oh gosh, he’s good-looking and seems very intelligent and is not committed, maybe I should go for it’. Lilongwe is a small town when you think about who your potential partners are.” The last of three excerpts from the book And Then I Came Here by Lynne Kay.
“You see so many young women selling vegetables by the side of the road … you’d hear the same stories – ‘My teacher used to ask me to come and clean his house, and he started having sex with me and then I got pregnant. I got kicked out of school and now I’m sitting here selling vegetables…'” Another excerpt from the book And Then I Came Here by Lynne Kay.
“I’m a pretty confident person. I didn’t have a lot of anxiety about packing up my life and going to a place where I knew nobody and just starting up by myself. And then one month into being here, I was robbed at gunpoint and handcuffed to my housekeeper in the toilet.” New Yorker and sexologist Maria describes her life and experience in Malawi in the first of three excerpts from the book And Then I Came Here by Lynne Kay.
