This morning at the Mariapolis Piero (Nairobi, Kenya), there were intense final preparations for the first "Pan African and International EoC School for Young People" that started this afternoon and will last until 26 May. Those who have crossed a whole continent or travelled through half of the world to participate are of course looking very much forward to this event. Although there have been some last-minute circumstances, such as the failed coup in Burundi a few days ago and the related disorders that prevented some of the students who had booked to be here today, but in Africa they say it is normal that things are constantly changing and the usual exercise is to adapt to the circumstances meekly. Perhaps that is why the climate one can feel at the Little Town Piero today is joyous and hopeful.
