TITLE: "THE RIVER OF HOPE IN AFRICA. GUINEA BISSAU. "
I have been traveling through Africa for more than 20 years and in Guinea Bissau I found the place of hope. In the Salthino river, in the interior of the country I found the best beauty in every way. It looked like a TV set and it was reality. The women washed their clothes with their children, the young people enjoyed throwing themselves from the rocks into the water, the fishermen traveled the river with their boat without a motor. Pure poetry.
