Sunny days in Brighton are the best days. I used to love walking around town, up and down the hills, past the townhouses and apartments. I just noticed the date on these photos, though – 2007! I can’t believe it was four years ago that I was in England!
This photo comes from a folder called Bye to Michela with just a handful of snapshots taken one afternoon having ice cream on the beach with some classmates. I got to know Michela, from Italy, because she and I ended up researching a lot of the same topics during the year since we both had an interest in refugees, abuse, post-conflict areas, and Africa. We later reconnected in Mozambique where she got a job working with a university in Maputo.
