Love Against Borders
When I graduated college, I was twenty-one and anxious to get out of New York and see the world. I accepted the first job I found: teaching English to children in a small mountain city in Ecuador. The ten-week assignment in a foreign land soon became my life and my home, and, as one may expect, there was a girl. Two years later, when police refused to recognize my visa and placed me under arrest, all I thought about was Rosy.
