OH, Salone, Sweet Salone...

I miss you..

I miss your streets

I miss your alley ways

I miss  your markets

I miss your vendors  & stores

I miss your crazy goats

I miss your colors

I miss your red soil

I miss your overloaded poda podas

I miss your mangoes

I miss your talk talk

I miss your trees

I miss your mud huts

I miss your faces full of wonderment

I miss your smiles

I miss people carrying things on their heads

I miss your beaches,

I miss your fresh seafood,

I miss your mountaintop views

most of all...

I miss your people...
