I got bewitched by the the butterfly’s flapping wing,

In the shade of the dormant volcano of the Soufriere,

Lulled by the rustling of coconut trees, by frogs croaking and the surf of the sea.





I discovered Karukera, a land partly dreamt of and partly real, a land of a gentle lifestyle with a latent violence lurking in the shade.

I slipped behind this scenery of luxurious vegetation as seen on postcards.

I discovered a territory which grows in discordance with a land that regains its rights.

A postcard picture which is torn between mass tourism and violent natural elements.

I touched with my finger life in suspense.
