I am in Casablanca airport, Mohammed V its name. I got here at 3pm and I will be flying to Cotonou, Benin at 8.55pm.
Actually I was supposed to be already there but when I went to the airport yesterday there was a problem…so I am leaving today instead.
I will be in Cotonou at 2.30am and Anna is coming to pick me up.
I am starting my journey today… These will be my notes with a line about my experience at least once a day…
I believe I am going to have a life changing experience which I want to record forever-I want to have in writing my emotions, my feelings that one day I will read again.
I will stay in Benin till the 19th of November…with people that I neither met nor seen before.
I found this Italian NGO, Amici di Francesco (http://www.amicidifrancesco.it/lesperienza-di-gabriella) and got to know that there was a group of volunteers leaving to Africa at the beginning of November.
It fitted my plan perfectly!...😃
...this year I had finally decided to test myself and my “forever present desire” of wanting to be in Africa with the children.
Well, I won’t ever talk about it again without knowing what it really means! It’s 6.15pm, I was writing sitting on a chair in front of a caffe’-there was a guy in front of me that asked to sit at my table…so now he is next to me….I am stopping for a sec to look for somewhere else to sit😅
just to finish off, I want to record that I am dreaming that moment when I will have those little children next to me in the small villages there…
If I only think for a moment at it, my eyes fill up with tears for the overwhelming emotions.
I will let you know….soon tomorrow💫
