Aki These Luo Men!

The women’s washroom is somewhat a sacred space. That sounds stupid but it’s true. Women’s washrooms have probably seen more tears than most pillows. They have heard more confessions than priests. Or do you call them fathers? Mostly in drunken slurs but confessions none the less. Held on to...
