In 10 weeks she flies behind to reality. She’ll be dodging an avalanche of reporters, there willl be cameras everywhere she goes. As seductiveness fades she’ll have to find a job.
A 39-year-old with a self-assurance for drug smuggling. It won’t be easy.
Drifting in a waters off a Kuta Beach on a blue-sky day will be only a memory.
