Notes from Africa 2009


July 2009, on the spot notes from Africa…


… Kampala, a town on hills at the foot of which there are swamps, permanent traffic jams with pedestrians, bikes, motor-bikes, cars, emaciated cows and chickens between asphalt and the ochre earth.

… the proud children at the orphanage : every child cultivates a tiny plot of land, where one or two vegetable leaves are sprouting !

Notes from Africa

« There is an Africa of tragedy and famine, of corruption and war, of blood and hunger and tears, of incurable disease and tribal clashes (...). There is a different side to this ancient land. The place which still has what most of the world has lost. Space. Roots. Traditions. Stunning beauty. True wilderness. Rare animals. Extraordinary people. »
