How much you own

carrying a bucket of water, Ghana, Atsiekpie, village

It is hard to describe the feeling

When you discover that you have more stuff in you backpack

Than they own all together

That you can see more of the country

Than the people living in it

That the water you use to flush the toilet is cleaner

Than the water they use for drinking

That in my house I have more toilets

Than an entire village

That they do not have a toilet at all

That it is normal to pee blood at one moment

That there is a medicine

But they cannot pay

That only the poor die of malaria

That living by the day

Means having no future
