Ich komme um 21.30 in San Jose Cosa Rica an. Diego und Mario holen mich ab. Wir kennen uns nicht aber es fühlt sich an als würde ich gute Freunde treffen. Im Auto auf dem Weg in die Stadt erzählen wir unsere Geschichten wie einem Freund den [...]

Carta a Magaly sobre la Pobreza,

Ya estamos en Senegal. Salimos ayer de Nouakchott, capital de Mauritania, pasando por larguìsimos kilòmetros de la màs terrible pobreza, de los basurales gigantes donde se mezcla vida, basura, gente, comida, vivienda, niños, mujeres, animales, cabras, burros, camiones, en una degradaciòn de la humanidad.

(English) Synthesis of Asia

(English) I’m looking at the clouds over Russia.
Aeroflot is carrying us on a long flight towards Europe.
In other words, we’ve finished Asia.
Curious, now the first stage is fulfilled, completed, it seems very strange, incredible.
Things are definitely going better than foreseen; the truth is that it started in New Zealand with several fears, with many questions, [...]
