All from the same family, Ira (Rai) Samser (Rai) and Kaji (Rai) were with us for 10 days of trek. At seven, we've become a great family and I must admit that the attachment was done quickly, even if our culture seems to be more expressive in this regard. Kaji was our guide and translator (English / French) from Parfums d'Adventure, Ira and Samser our porters. Ira made us think twice about our supposed “equipment” needs as he was impressive with “nothing”. I really enjoyed how Samser was responsible and the fact he was always at my side for photography. Kaji has superbly managed the trek and learned us a lot. We keep a wonderful memory of them, our shared days and nights, an aperitif we offer them or a meal they concocted for us. I made these photos including portraits – classical and Close-ups – to give them and we do not regret anything in making the trip with more than 15 kg extra shirts, jackets, shoes and other stuffs to offer. Anyway, I open a parenthesis: We have problems regarding donation in our society with for example the “Secours Catholique” always deserted and without reception at 10am; Emmaüs closed on Monday, “employees” who set aside donations for them; associations that refuse to move while you offer the entire content of a house; those who refuse clothing with a small hole under humanists and nauseous pretext, and so on! Short, ultra-social kills the basic meaning of the process. I no longer make donation in France – and I am far from alone, a simple internet search reveals this – the fault?: These associations and the demagogy of our country.
