When I lived in Kenya as a child I was very susceptible to the stories told to me by an old fisherman. As I got older, my belief in supernatural powers disappeared, but a part of me still longed for that open, unprejudiced way in which I looked at life. On the coral island Wasini I met an old fisherman Masoud, and his steady helper Juma. How long Masoud remains without a catch, every day he sincerely believes that tomorrow he will catch a shark. I realise that the magic of this world rests in the simplicity of it. Jeroen van Velzen
