One day, in 2005, in the northern part of Democratic Republic of Congo,

I met this person.

We were walking on the same trail, in opposite directions.

I had an unknown feeling.

My eyes are blue, my skin is white.

As I was this area since several monthes, I had forgotten eyes could be blue, I had forgotten that my skin was white.

We were not speaking the same verbal language. I asked wether I could take a picture.

Now, years after, I know I experienced a kind of alter ego encounter.

I never knew wether he was male or she was a female.
