Life in a Soap Factory

Life in a Soap Factory

I don’t remember exactly how I got there…
Probably I was curious.

It was in Skopje, Macedonia.
It wasn’t a real soap factory, it had been one, long ago, now it was just an empty building.
Well, not really empty. Probably the movements in the building caught my attention, but suddenly I was surrounded by kids.
Not very wel dressed nor very clean looking kids.

There was a huge Roma family living in the building.
They agreed when I asked if I could have a look around.

For a while I feared to get stabbed or shot.
Instead I got coffee.
