I still find it hard to believe this spectacular story of redemption from ‘skin and sin’ just fell into my lap bit by bit with trust earned. Slowly this amazing woman revealed herself to me. She wanted her story told without recognition or reward. Her words of wisdom are directed to all the working girls in Costa Rica and around the world – no matter what you think about the world’s oldest profession — there is pain behind the glamour, there is damage behind the dollars. Her words are also directed at disrespectful cheating men on the prowl.
This old burned out, washed up reporter living the dream as a beach bum in Costa Rica was still up to the task. Throughout this story, for illustrative purposes only, are beautiful eyes lifted from photographs of the most gorgeous Latina models known to walk the Earth. Their identities are a secret as well. Their eyes are her eyes.
