After 9 years of absence, I return to Cameroon for the funeral of my father. I fear the evil eye that took away many of my brothers and the misunderstanding that reigns in my big family. I take advantage of this celebration to consult my mother, the elders and the young people, to understand what I will be able to transmit to my children born in Spain.
