È passato quasi un anno da quando abbiamo iniziato questo progetto. Un anno fatto di tazzine di chai, sottaceti e yogurt, carne e spezie e meravigliosi dolcissimi dolci, dal sapore di cose lontane. Non come quando torni da un viaggio e porti qualcosa con te. No! Non è la stessa sensazione questa. Queste prelibatezze ci appaiono provenire da un altro mondo! Eppure il concetto potrebbe sembrare lo stesso ma per noi non lo è... perché queste prelibatezze sembrano venire da difficili percorsi, da diverse barriere, da ostacoli da superare e da pregiudizi da boicottare. E noi amiamo sentirci parte di questa resistenza. Di questa esistenza. Amiamo sentirci parte di questi camionisti.
It's been almost a year since we started this project. A year made of cups of chai, pickles and yogurt, meat and spices and wonderful sweet sweets, from the taste of distant things. Not like when you come back from a trip and bring something with you. No! This is not the same feeling. These delicacies appear to us to come from another world! Yet the concept may seem the same but for us it is not ... because these delicacies seem to come from difficult paths, from different barriers, from obstacles to overcome and from prejudices to boycott. And we love to feel part of this resistance. Of this existence. We love to feel part of these truck drivers.

Gente di MARE Sicily 2018
Living a life. Making a living. In India one is not spared from experiencing the raw side of life.
Prayer flags. Prayers multiplying with the wind. Flags with prayers.
GENTE DI MARE. 🇬🇧 As always what I love most in my latest travel are people. And Sicily does not disappoint me..... 🇮🇹 come sempre, le persone sono la cosa che più ho amato nel mio ultimo viaggio... e la Sicilia non mi ha deluso...
Stopped by a tiny little village for lunch today. Up on the hill next to the main road I found the old village. Old houses, old fashioned way of living a life. Kids. Kids that melted my heart. Made me think of my kids, how much time I spent with them, how much we did together, how much I thought them. And I enjoyed every bit of it. These kids have no adults giving them the time or the attention kids need and deserve. Most men were drunk. Some women too. Durga Pooja being celebrated. These kids ...
Tak-Tsang Gompa, altitude 3700 meters. Today marked the second of a four day Pooja performed in hope the village will be protected from earthquakes.
Comerciante empezando el día.
Eritrea 2018 Massaua. 🇬🇧 Once upon a time, before a terrible war, there was a wonderful city. Would you tell me why the world forgot it? 🇮🇹c’era una volta, prima di una guerra terribile, una splendida città? Allora, Mi vuoi dire perché il mondo l’ha dimenticata?
After two beautiful but very cold days through mountain roads, today Tawang welcomed me with sun. Tawang monastery. Rice is spread out on the main square to dry.
registered the 3rd highest inflation rate in the World behind Venezuela and Iran in that order according to Prof Hanke registering a rate of 156% in October 2018.
Are we faced with an economic depression headed again to a full blown recession in Zimbabwe. These high rates are obviously reminiscent of the 2007-2008 meltdown years of hyperinflation. Khiya Khiya becomes the order of the day because in a recession there is no meaningful production people become informal commodity brokers and dealers on the streets gor whatever shortages become prevalent such as - cooking oil - fuel
- basic commodities
We apparently have become the highest taxed people on the African continent with the Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube announcing a 2% tax on all money transfers. Mobile money transfers constitute 90% of all payments as a result of the endemic cash shortages in the country.
October 1, 2012 - Two Uyghur jade miners curl up together along the sand dunes, for protection against the winds along the southernmost part of the Taklamakan Desert. The Yurungkash River carries white jade from the Kunlun mountains towards Khotan. Arguably the most precious jade, called "yangzhi" 羊脂 which translates to "mutton fat", it's been a precious item traded since the days of the ancient Silk Road route. *
I had been cycling on a small provincial road a couple hundred miles south of Khotan, running along the border of the KunLun mountains and the Taklamakan Desert. The landscape was absolutely empty. Two women would be coming rowards me in the opposite direction with big bags slung over their shoulders. A few hundred meters onward, I see these two men taking shelter from the desert headwinds I was now taking on.
