Memories From Normandy
June, 6th, 1944 changed the course of a war and of our history. It was on D-Day that the allied troops invaded Normandy for a series of episodes that shaped the world with memories of sadness, braveness, courage and brotherhood. Almost 70 years later, the place still breathes commotion, for the thousands of the daily visitors or for those many veterans who return, usually to say a last goodbye to forests, beaches, borders and foxholes they once called home.
“Asia’s largest slum, Dharavi, lies on prime property right in the middle of India’s financial capital, Mumbai (Bombay). It is home to more than a million people [spread over an area of 175 hectares]. A city within a city, it is one unending stretch of narrow dirty lanes, open sewers and cramped huts [there is one toilet for every 1500 residents]. In a city where house rents are among the highest in the world, Dharavi provides a cheap and affordable option to those who move to Mumbai to earn their living.” - Sephi Bergerson
