May 2007 - Celebrating Eritrea's 16th Independence Day
 

 

Asmara Eritrea - June 1st 2007

 

The program is finished. There is nothing left to visit, or to do.

I spent the whole day walking in Asmara, and decide to visit the Italian school. I saw the school from the bell tower yesterday. It is one of the typical examples of the special historical relations between Eritrea and Italy. Although Italian colonialism ended formally in 1941, when the British forces kicked them out of the East African region during WW2, the Italian culture is still alive in Eritrea.

I politely ask the guard if I can enter the premises to make some pictures. It is the director of the school that has to give the final permission. it is a lot of work for a few pictures and a fast glimpse on the school, but with an empty agenda, I should not complain. After explaining my position, the friendly director of Italian origin appoints a guide to accompany me, while I am on the school's premises.

When visiting the former Spinelli store, and asking permission to make pictures, the men point me to the fact that the US embassy is right behind this building. Therefore it is not allowed to make any pictures. But I am able to convince them, that no part of the US embassy will be on my pictures, showing them the planned directions. It is okay, and I make my pictures.
