I do not fit neatly into any box. I grew up in Bangladesh but have lived in England and the U.S. for most of my adult life. This mixed background has hopefully made me very open-minded, shaped my tastes, and made me both adaptable and flexible. I enjoy political debate, archaeological and architectural discovery, the beauty of a coral reef, music ranging across the classical/modern spectrum, almost any bottle of New Zealand sauvignon blanc, historical novels, the flowers in my garden, and a witty conversation. My daughter is all-important to me. My cat has been a loyal companion for the last twelve years and has traveled with me from Washington to Ethiopia to Egypt and back. I do not know who I am looking for but would hope to find a normal relationship which is loving, passionate, fun, and committed.
