But their religion is hope, their life is hope.
For whoever believes life is awaited; Why bother to see the end?

Uncommon to see older women, usually mute and granite as baobab, crying and screaming with acute and subtle voice that seems to pierce the bright sky of a hot day in the hinterland of Watamu.
Rare but not amazing, if we see the funeral of the eldest, authoritative and beloved among the "gohu", the priests ethnicity Mijikenda.

The other is the esplanade leading to Bamba and the landscape becomes more barren.
Here the red earth is winning the thousand-year war with green bush.
smell of wood burned is mixed in looted corn fields.
What little you eat it grows quickly and the water is in short supply as they we enter.

Christopher carving wood to the local craft market.
From his hands come out of giraffes, elephants, Maasai warriors.
Martin brings fun of people of the suburbs of Malindi with his "piki piki", the Chinese motorcycle that he bought in installments endless.
Her feet shifting down, leaning on the humps of the dirt road, on unstable and sandy paths sidewalks.
