Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Hugo Torino

The picture has been taken in Dakar, Senegal, and it represents one of the most important moments in the daily life: the families (including parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, sometimes neighbors, and invited people as myself) share their lunch and their dinner. In Senegal, “share” means more than in occidental culture: you take your meal from the same great plate. This way of behave take the real sense of life in Senegal: it is not rare to share your bedroom, your bed, your clothes, and all the spaces that we occidental people consider as individual things. It is an experience !
