Project Info

Unexpected Senegal

At the beginning of July I left Italy in order to accomplish an internship at International Organization for Migrations - the United Nations Migration Agency. I had to go to Geneve, then destination brusquely changed in favor of Dakar. I knew nothing about this city. I chose to rent a room in a private home of a local family. It was an excellent choice, the family was so great. Any comfort but a great humanity. I learned what opennes means. I learned what respect is. I learned to smile to strangers. I learned to be happy about life. I did not expect nothing and I founded a treasure.
