AIRPLANE OVER THE FOREST (GABON)
African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Smoke trail of a plane above the rainforest (Gabon).
"From time to time the people will raise their eyes and see the trail of a plane in the sky, straight as a spider's thread, evanescent as a cloud. And even if I have taken my heart away from here, Atemè tells me, even if I have began to forget them, the people will still be singing the song the women composed for me the day I arrived at the camp, and will still imagine me, up there on the plane looking down on the forest from on high..."
