Satwa Guna project - Unknown VIETNAM 2012

posted on 2nd of july, 2012

Preparations almost finished

The departure date approaches and we are in a hurry. We got out in time from the bohemian state in which we had lost ourselves to apply for the Vietnamese visa. We thought that we could apply online and in 2 days the visa would be ready. It is a possibility, but only if you apply for a single entry visa for 15 days. Because we wanted a 3 months multiple visa, we had to go to the Embassy with the papers and we had to wait 5 more working days after the pre-aproval letter we applied for online. So, we applied in time for receiving the visa and not being necessary to postpone our departure to Italy.

In the official plan of the project it is not mentioned a short stop in Italy, where we would let the newest members of the family, our two dogs ...

Eternal Italy (Unknown Vietnam 2012- Satwa Guna project)

posted on 19th of july, 2012

Written by Simina Cernat (member of Satwa Guna 2012 - Unknow Vietnam project)

We entered Italy…a child near me whispered, with a sad voice: ciao Italy. I asked him if he lives in Italy and he answered no.
Do you like Italy? No.
I was looking on the endless highway and I was thinking…I didn’t like Italy too…I had his age when I came here to spend my holiday with my parents, exactly like him. My parents wanted me and my sister to move in Italy. We had all the papers prepared, the only thing we had to do is to take the situation from school. There, in front of the headmaster, I started to cry and I told them I don’t want to go. I didn’t move anymore.
I went only in holiday. If I sum up all the...

Here in Italy we're used to tell: "non sputare nel piatto dove mangi" (do not spit in the dish where you eat).
"I wasn’t allowed to go alone in the city, because it was too dangerous…"
Our cities are dangerous because there are lot of immigrants here not to work (to sell drugs or enter in the houses trough the windows is not a job).
In Italy lives a concentration of (more or less) 10% of immigrants.
In the Italians jails there is a concentration of (more or less) 40% of immigrants. In North Italy this concentration rise to 55%
Some data here: http://www.ristretti.it/commenti/2011/febbraio/statistiche_detenuti.pdf

It's true that Italians use the car also to go to the toilet.

What's wonderful photos on your site!

Mont Blanc, a provocation that deserves to be lived

posted on 21st of july, 2012

Written by Simina Cernat (member of Satwa Guna 2012 - Unknow Vietnam project)

The idea of climbing Mont Blanc came in my mind last year, in Ladakh. I was on a pass over 5000 meters and I was thinking…now we are on a higher altitude than if we were on Mont Blanc. I was feeling very good up there and a big curiosity made me ask myself how I would feel if I were on Mont Blanc.
So, I included a short climb in my plans for this summer. Mont Blanc was fetching so good because I still had to go to Italy to visit my parents anyway, and Mont Blanc is so close to them.
After we’ve got some rest after the long road to Italy, we made some shopping, a frontal torch, a gas bottle,...
