Opinions differ on whether or not it is okay to call a dark-skinned baby a “chocolate baby”. It’s definitely not up to me (white person) to decide, and it probably depends on who says it to whom and in which context. But maybe when in doubt, don’t compare people’s looks to food?

Anyway this page is mostly about Lena talking about her mother, and about Lena and Tiziana fooling around. I wrote the dialogue a long (long) time ago and then recently decided this chapter would be as good as any other to include it.
