A dream, maybe a fairy tale. But we have to be careful not to confine our dreams and hopes to the childhood season only. Like these values aren’t important in the adult world.

In other words, we must not be afraid to express good feelings that make our society better.

These are the values cultivated by those who carry out their duties seriously, day by day, those of those who voluntarily work to help others in difficulty..]

tasting the scene of the local market, Stone Town, Zanzibar, 2016


” I took this picture at the local market in Stone Town, Zanzibar. It was Sunday morning and the place was exaggeratedly overloaded with smells, sounds and colors. Needless to say that it was almost annoying. But the fish section of the market casted by a beautiful morning light made the scene absolutely stunning”.
