“At the end of October 2015, I went to South Africa for the first time to be reunited with my girlfriend (now fiancée). I stayed there for three months. It was a very turbulent time: having to adjust to depending on cars to get around (without having a driver’s license), my girlfriend being rushed to the hospital with blood clots stuck in her lungs (and almost dying), and trying to keep my freelance jobs back at home running while being far away. We found solace and tranquility in the sunsets when the heat would die down and we'd gather with friends to eat and drink."
