I should have captured the look on Keltoum's face when I told her: "I'd like to feature you on my blog because I find you beautiful." Her big black eyes widened and I felt that she was looking for a hidden camera.
Her British step-parents were standing right next to us, Keltoum turned to them and whispered "I don't know what to do..."
I could tell they didn't understand everything and yet it was clear how proud they were.
I bet you they're sipping a cup of tea as we speak, bragging: "I was in Paris with my son's girlfriend and she had to stop for an impormptu photoshoot- she's a model you know."
