Lubanzi is a small village along South Africa Wild Coast, immersed in a breathtaking scenery made of smooth green hills, round huts and deserted beaches. Kids on the beach play, run, bath and after a while, they slowly approach.
There aren’t many visitors in this remote area, thus the children look at us with a mix of curiosity and shyness. Then, after a few minutes, they start speaking the few words of English they have learned and ask for sweets, probably the greatest treat. I admire their beautiful faces and graceful movements, I wonder what they think, how they imagine our lives, what they dream. Most of all, I can’t help asking myself what their future will be. And I know that I am unable to give myself an answer.
