  dear waris dirie,
i came to this site as a delayed reaction on your interview at "treffpunkt kultur" . just because your presence and energy were so totally opposed to the stiff and artificial appearance of mrs. rett and her studio. africa seems far away even if it s just downstairs. you seem far away , even when your image is there , left centered. zapping through the tv jungle i seldom see truth. when the lines paint a close up of your face i see truth . a lot of people must be moved by your engagement. that is hope. all the best. sofia
