Introduction

Original writing If I can remember it correctly it was the summer of 1997, the 15th of August to be precise. That day was the day that had influenced my life dramatically it was the day that anyone would hate to arrive. To leave a place you were bought up in wasn't straightforward and pleasant but it was something that most people in the third world find doing.

It wasn't just me who didn't like the stay my parents had the same view but we managed to get out of this country and to go to a place where I did have relatives I didn't really mind since going back wasn't an option.
