French lesson... This témoignage — that is, a first hand account — of a cruisy scene on a rocky beach comes from one Alex H. James who was born in Tangiers, Morocco in 1989. Not to be confused with a ménage à trois, the French term for threesome, which he unfortunately did not get up to on this particular holiday moment.

Alex describes the scene: ‘The Reader’s the only one who has his swimming gear on. The Reader goes behind a tree, bends down, takes a water bottle from his bag. As he drinks, his arms and legs, with the trunk in front of him, make up a sculpture. I quickly take out my camera — zoom, focus, and snap.’
