Smiling all the way to mama!

Sal airport, Cape Verde. February 2016. Meet Domingo. He is one of the many sons of Africa who lives and works in Europe. But like many children of Africa living in the Diaspora there is no place like home. This picture was taken in Sal, Cape Verde while he was waiting for his connecting flight to Praia after the long trip from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Domingo might be a very big, greying boy now, but the wide smile you see on his face is because he was so happy he was going to see his mother again! He could not wait to embrace his mother and taste her food. It further confirms that, no matter which roads we might have travelled, mama’s arms is the only destination that brings a smile to our faces. (photo credit: Lut)
