Going Home to Africa

My 20 000km journey home through West Africa

Magazine Interview - Celsona (Solsona Magazine)

IMG_20200512_162229

In the summer of 2018 I spent several months in Solsona, Catalonia in Spain and was welcomed by the local community and made some life-long friends.  To me it was the first time in Europe that I felt at home.  Despite not speaking the language Catalan (a mixture of French and Spanish), or Spanish, yet whether they understood me or not they made me welcome and it remains a memorable time.  

The people also embraced me by helping me raise funds for Kusasa and the local Language school (EOI Manresa and Solsona) remains a loyal supporter of our girls.

Celsona is a local magazine that serves the wider community of the area, one righ in history and culture.  It was a pleasure to be interviewed for the magazine and local newspaper by Anna Pujol.
