Paparidda


this seller of wooden artefacts in Accra greeted me in Sicilian! he had travelled across most of Africa to find himself in a refugee camp in Lampedusa. Italian police rejected his stay after a few weeks and he was sent back to North Africa. He found his way back to Accra, and sells small memories. He is glad he survived, he would not go back to Europe even if he could.
