Boitumelo is staring out of her window on a sleepy Monday morning - the late autumn wind is blowing whirls of leaf clouds and dust across the campus - leaves and dust, some things and nothings, puffs of chaos. Chaos gnawing at her soul. Twenty years of study and too many aching years of yearning - for a glimpse of dry African bush through rain-spattered double-glazed windows, for lost dreams and brilliant ideas (and always too little money), for well-fed children with time to play, for African pride in a world which sees and hears no such thing.
