The Test

The Test

I wasn’t simply giving Angeli a test run to decide if she was the travelling companion I needed, if she could take what I was about to throw at her: 15 days of pulling hundreds of kilograms of gear through the desert. These few days spent living with this Marwari family, learning the centuries-old techniques of caring for the camel and surviving in the barren environment, were actually more of a trial for me. A rite of passage of sorts. Angeli had a vital role in the family and I needed to prove myself worthy.

    Salut Yannick,

    Merci pour ta carte…ça semble une autre planète…j’imagine que ça te permet de te ressourcer. As-tu eu l’occasion de visionner le film “Un thé au Sahara” ? Tu as aimé j’imagine? Félicitations sincères pour la réalisation de ton projet en Haïti. Je pars pour la Guadeloupe dans un mois pour une semaine.

    Take care,

    Richard
