My first experience with Mirada Oberta was when I was 14, and the second time 16. The first time I went to Africa was the discovery of a new world full of surprises and new experiences. Personally, with that trip, I could fully open my mind by letting in all the new things that appeared throughout the day. In addition to opening my mind, I could grow as a person, the trip with a group was very enriching because I could meet new people that after a few days ended up becoming my family, united by the strong experiences that we shared together. Among the young people we created a strong energy that gave the group vitality and curiosity that in this different and special situation, we all end up joining also the elderly, the younger ones and those who are so different from me that I never thought I could join them. The Gambia magic makes everyone end up together!
An enriching journey in many ways, to connect and to disconnect, to learn, to observe your surroundings, to walk around the sandy villages, to talk with others and with you, live and know. Conversations in the light of the moon by the river, long days where sweat is your enemy and water your best friend. A trip where images speak for themselves and where you create your own story.
