Calais burning, marking one year since The Jungle refugee camp was burnt down

Today marks the one year anniversary of The Jungle refugee camp burning down, I spent a lot of time in The Jungle, and above all in this dystopian environment of what looks like some of festival the thing that stood out most to me was the kindness, love and generosity shown to me by the resident of the camp, it's such a shame that the current political situation in this country doesn't give people a chance to want to seek a better life, I think we often take for granted what we have here, even the things like that seem so obvious like freedom of speech, I think it's really important to take this time to reflect on the privileges we have.

A refugee from Afghanistan learning to swim, in the water he crossed to get to Greece, on the same beaches that body's of people have been found after they failed to cross
I think learning to conquer something that up until then was a major source of pain and anguish is incredibly brave of these kids.

While walking back to my friends house in Gambia this lovely women shouted at me ask me to take her picture (I had it around my neck).
if you look closely she is chewing a special kind of stick as it acts as a tooth brush kind of system.
she was such an interesting character, I think the only time someone has asked me to take there photo like this.

Met this lovely man in a cafe just next to the beach in Essouira, Morocco
He had such a calming and wholesome energy to him.
