Local woman in traditional dress walks past guitarfish catch in DjifferLocal woman in traditional dress walks past guitarfish catch in DjifferThe port of Djiffer at sunset is like a circle of hell. Screams, boats arriving, the smell of fish, fishermen running back and forth to unload their catch. In the midst of the confusion, this woman in traditional dress arrives, detached, and glances at the freshly caught guitar fish.

Il porto di Djiffer al tramonto è come un girone infernale. Urla, barche che arrivano, odore di pesce, pescatori che corrono avanti e indietro a scaricare il pescato. In mezzo alla confusione arriva questa donna in abito tradizionale, distaccata, che getta uno sguardo ai pesci chitarra appena pescati.

 “A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.”

Ryszard Kapuściński, Travels with Herodotus
