Merci Conakry !
Au revoir Guinée !
Upon meeting you I was on the verge of tears and despair. The chaos, the incessant noise, the ongoing pillage, the state of your infrastructure, the injustice of the political and economical systems almost made me go blind with rage. And then your people, your enchanting people, your phenomenal artists, your elders, your young men and women stole my heart with their beauty and bright minds and opened my eyes and took me into the meanders of your history. You were the first African country to say NO to De Gaulle. Unfortunately dictatorship broke you and the political crimes have never been punished - many people are yet to mourn so many of their lost ones. BUT despite all that, I also learned you are one of the most beautiful countries in West Africa and it is true for I got a chance to behold a part of your beauty.
I am full!
And I am thankful!
Merci Nicolas Doyard for inviting us.

What a journey this has been! A journey full of unhoped for encounters, a journey full of joy and tears, a journey full of sleepless nights and bright mornings, a journey into the heart of humanity. Thank you all, and most of all to all my African brothers and sisters who came out to hold space with us through this journey.
