I absolutely agree with you. My mother's people are from Ukraine and came to Canada...during the famine. I remember in a story I call "My Grandmother's Story", as she bore the brunt of what was happening in Ukraine... My father's people were Dukhobours from Georgia, Russia. He was born in Canada. I haven't explored that part of my history yet...but it will come. :)
Good to meet you here.
Now this is for anyone else who visits this page: the photo shows Babacar telling in my school in Germany!
And it was a great morning - afterwards the students talked a lot about how much it had meant to them to meet such an impressive cultural ambassador from your continent.
Bienvenue Babacar, que la parole soit tojours avec toi!
You were in Germany and told stories in Frankfurt. That's not fair: once you come to my country, I just left for touring Southern Italy. A pity we didn't meet. Hope to see you again some day!
