We went to South Sudan to make a documentary for an NGO called "Jóvenes y Desarrollo" (Youngs and Development), in which we wanted to portray the difficulties of women in an new born country.
We were psychologically prepared to find, in the poorest country of Africa, a big deal of sadness, despair and unhealthy conditions. What we found is, that even this very difficult condition, people is amazing, kind, they smile all the time, and "our" women were incredible good to us, opening their homes and caring for us in all ways. They have nothing after 40 years of war. No running water, no electric supplies, not enough vaccines.
But our travel changed completely our mind about what "poor" means, and I found out that, not having as materials things as I do, they are a lot richer then me.
