Brexit

Everybody can get stuck now and then but sometimes it can no longer pass through the bracket. This happened to me years ago during my holidays in Scotland. The plane of my flight took off in Zaventem, Brussels BE and while it was landing in Edinburgh I thought by myself: “Heaven I can immediately return home as I brought the wrong bank card with me.” My monthly money would arrive on the account of which I had the card left at home. Settled in the city I started thus a…

The Burkina Faso reunion and what precedes

Santa coming soon

Congolese are so fast in communication! Nobody can follow them. Today we enter the Mandible to find our family gathered around one of the tables. Surrounded by people with whom J. claims to have been in China last year, she announces: “This year we are going to America”. At the question where, she says they are going to South Africa. They will travel first to South Africa and then to America. The fourth person, their traditional traveling companion coming from abroad, seems to have forgotten all the foreigners in the…

Martin Luther King JR
