"My stay in Lamu has been until now the most wonderful experience that I have ever had! And it has not been this way because I was in a paradisiacal place with spectacular beaches and I was surrounded by beauty no matter where I looked, but because I have been lucky enough to share laughter, guffaws, complicit gazes, hugs, kisses, tears that were up to slip away from my eyes and tears that reached to slip away, with a group of remarkable women and with a group of children that have given to me a lot of affection and tenderness barely knowing me.

I carry each one of them in my heart and I have the feeling that a piece of me will stay forever with them in Lamu. I cannot avoid making a special mention to my little Abubakar, when each morning he ran so I would go after him, when we sang together Malaika (even if we only sang the chorus because it was the only part we knew ☺), when he cried and I would take him to comfort him and then I would try to make him smile… Each of these memories will stay with me forever.

I wish that I could come back one day and see how the little guys have grown up and the elder ones have achieved to study and to reach their dreams! And, finally, I would like to express my gratitude to Afrikable for giving me the opportunity to live what I have lived during this month!"
