A month ago, I was fully stressed out with my dissertation and it so happened that the one and only Mustafa Davis was going to be in Auckland for a couple of days to screen his documentaries and conduct workshops. I knew it was a sign. I Facebook-ed my friend, Shaymaa, and next thing I know I booked myself a ticket out of my misery.
Two weeks later, I arrived Auckland and Shaymaa graciously picked me up from the airport. The sun was shining, it was super warm and I was with a wonderful friend... I just knew I was going to have a good time in Auckland. At the very least, I knew I was determined to have a good time.
My beautiful Shaymaa.
She took me home and introduced me to the newest addition in her family, Louis.
It was love at first sight.
I think his ears are his best features, don't you think so too?
Then Shaymaa's parents grilled some bbq for lunch and it was deeeelicious. I told you I knew I was going to have a good time, didn't I?
