»The world is turned upside down. From Europe we do not start, we get there. On small boats, fragile walnut shells. Leaving war and hunger in other lands.
And the sea has become a bitter word.
But the word migrant, in those distant lands, is a beautiful word.
It means courage, hope, future.« —Mariana Chiesa Mateos, 2010
