The world with Marcel’s friends on a map

Writing these lines from Switzerland, where I rolled my mother in a wheelchair from an old people’s home to a dentist today, I have been thinking a lot about my roots recently. Since ten years almost permanently in the field, even before very frequent, sometimes long travels, and moving within Switzerland from place to place… Have I just adopted home everywhere and nowhere, loosing any sense of belonging to some place?

The center of the world is – of course – Kinshasa. But from there, a particularly strong set of lines still lead to Switzerland.

Not exactly. I generated this map of my Facebook friends. There are hardly any friends, who are not on Facebook these days, particularly not amongst the people, who share my lifestyle. And except if my eyes are really bad, there is a particular accumulation of red lines to … Switzerland!
